An Ode to Zombies

This is a poem I wrote to convince a friend to participate in my ward's Spooky Poetry Night. Enjoy!

An Ode to Zombies

Oh! and alas! How misunderstood are these
Fair creatures of the night! ‘Twixt life and death
Hovering, roaming, gathering as roiling seas!
They are perfect--though, yes, with stinky breath.

How ignoble in reason, how finite in faculties!
He is the paragon of aplomb, he
Never tires, stops at nothing to seize
You! He is lovely, he is a zombie.

So next time lumbering zombies you spy
Don’t scream, run away, or hide.
If you join ‘em, you won’t quite die
So choose wisely and be on the winning side!

  1. Cute. :) I liked the references to "stinky breath" and "finite in faculties". (Sounds like several of my Jr. High students who also love Zombies.)

    Happy night! Duck
