zombies

by damommza & sunofawot

I hope that I shall never see
a zombie who looks just like me
someone who’s brain is not intact
who’d eat my head, yes it’s a fact

one of the scary walking dead
I’d have to hide under my bed
or quickly climb the nearest tree
then try to run when zombie free

and where to go? I have no clue
don’t want to end as zombie chew
so to the mountains I would go
I hear that zombies don’t like snow

with my two doggies and the cat
and cans of food and lots of that
then I will miss the end of times
and spend my days just making rhymes

but what if my acquired lore
is merely rumour, not the facts
I could be caught in zombie’s grasp
despite my less than selfless acts

to run and hide may not be wise
when all my fellows do the same
the answer could be staying here
while others play the running game

so here we’ll stay, see out the storm
the last place any’d think to look
the dogs and cat can guard the house
while I can hide inside a book

  1. started to chuckle when I read the first line (remembered that kids’ poem at school) and gasping for breath by the middle (zombie chew, 😯 ) and then loved the idea of hiding in a book whilst the zombies pursue the rest of the population…

    • It reminded me of the lines from “Trees” by Alfred Joyce Kilmer:

      “I think that I shall never see
      A poem lovely as a tree”

      and that reminded me of Ogden Nash’s

      “I think that I shall never see
      a billboard lovely as a tree.
      Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
      I’ll never see a tree at all.”

  2. Exactly! I wonder how many poems that particular opening line has inspired… πŸ˜†

    Sillest poem we have ever written and that’s why I like it so much! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜† It was inspired by Kilmer (actually, stolen cuz I wasn’t giving it back) and zombies…next to M&M’s, my favorite snack!! LOL

    • There’s an orphan quote (ie nobody’s certain who actually said it): “Good artists borrow, great artists steal”
