Zombie ode

Uploaded by Scott D

Entombed beneath the cold cold ground
Lie remains of one who grisly drowned
Flesh and bone and stench of bile
Is this really his eternal domicile?

Legend has it they come back
To rule the night for they lack
The very blood that used to surge
Through heart and body- vein dispersed.

They hunt like rabid canines loose
Tripping, dragging moaning muse
Slow but sure they yearn to taste
Your body of which your fluids baste

Eerie, horrid distant screams
Warn the way for future deemed
Empty graves show vast unrest
Will I be joining those that fest?

Too many die every moment around us. Not wounded fatally though, but maimed and left to lurch and die. Too many ‘uv us’re paralysed enough to act. Hamletian syndrome. Too many tongues burnt on pyres fuelling a feudal society. Too

Memory socks all tangled in a mental laundromat Just another peasant playing the aristocrat Treading water with dinosaurs, pajamas dragging me down Dodging rubber bricks, thrown by a circus clown X-ray vision in a room full of bones Mass hypnosis


Zombie. ode

No more to live in earthly mould, Though siblings not bereft ? Despair in me did clasp its hold, My spirit long since left. No funeral pyre, no gaping clay, Not one sad mourning tear, No blood red rose, nor

I walk through the halls and streets like a zombie empty and alone Wandering aimlessly around curious if she knows I exist. “The past is the past,” they say but the pain is still pain, They also say, “The heart
