How else would a zombie express himself? I give you ZOMBIE HAIKUS

Slow, stiff and shuffling
Nothing works like it used to
My nose just fell off



Squinting in the sun
Moans and groans replace all words
Who was I before?



Sensations recede
Only hunger pains remain
Must eat brains…brains…brains



Wishing I could sleep
As the bullets rip my flesh
Never asked for this

summoned from my slumber
on this blustery day
I'll give it a shot
though haikus aren't my forte

Lets do for werewolfs
what Rod did for the zombie
lets see if I understand
5,7,5 is the key





The Darkness is here
I feel myself change within
taste for blood wanting

In control no more
Ripping flesh with my new teeth
limbs scattered about

Screams shatter the night
the full moon lights the carnage
I feel so alive

Wake without a clue
What happened to my garments
I'm covered in blood

Will I sleep tonight
Will nightmares overtake me
I'm losing my mind

Vampires

Blood sucking leeches
drink all our virgins souls now
sleep for the nighttime

morning will pass them
in their own tombs they sleep now
the day will turn grey

night becomes again
another virgin weeps blood
taken to the night

Her mercy will arise
revenge she will seek on the
blood wrenched mortal being

Running in the night
Knife in hand, he follows me
There is no escape

Ankle twists, falling down
Eyes wide, tears running down my cheeks
Helpless now, he's here

He whispers of death
Knife gleaming as it plunges
Hot breath on my face

Pain and he smiles
Blood cascades down, so cold now
Last breath leaving me

The stranger seeks sanctuary
But turn him away.

He offers you gifts
Calls out in the voice of friends
Do not let him in.

His faint sulphur stench
Betrays his native region
His eyes are like swords.

He will keep knocking
You can just hope for daybreak
He could still be there.
