How to rid your neighborhood of those pesky zombies

Pretty Zombie

Pretty zombie, you think you’re stylish?

Blood a drippin’ down your shirt.

With your herky-jerky, lumbering lurch.

Ain’t ‘gon get us, we’re on alert.

***

Pretty zombie, just next door,

Banging down the neighbor’s entry.

Tearing through their chain-link fencing.

Your inhuman strength is really frightening!

***

Pretty zombie, you’re so scary.

Are those brains, gray and mushy,

Spilled upon your dirty feet?

Don’t look now, your toes are squishing.

***

What awful teeth, you’re a baring.

Gaping mouth, you’re getting anxious.

Baseball bats don’t knock you down.

We’ll have to raid the gun collection.

***

See my boy, he’s packing heat.

He’ll use his gun to make you dead.

To his shoulder, butt stock goes.

Oh pretty zombie, where’s your head?

Friend Megan-Zombie, in Albuquerque
