Zombie Apocalpyse, Cliffs Notes Version

everyone
  wants to be wanted
              power
          is an aphrodisiac
     people
get off on killing


Izy asked the Real Toads to write a Cliffs Notes version of a favorite story. I like The Walking Dead (and the whole zombie genre, actually). Poem 25 of 30 for National Poetry Writing Month.

  1. I almost went with The Walking Dead, but knew it would be your first choice ;-)
    I love the haphazard gait of your lines - very zombie shuffle.

  2. I was introduced to The Walking Dead by my son ... during a few weeks in Atlanta! WOW! What a show. Can't say I didn't enjoy it. Gruesome and all.

  3. the show is fun (getting off on killing and all) and the comic books from which it originated are excellent, too.

  9. You've probably heard this one but what do vegetarian zombies eat? Grraaaaaiiiiins!!!!
    I love your commentary here (deftly delivered). I haven't watched much of the Walking Dead, but I have seen enough to understand the zombies are just an excuse to take up arms and vanquish your neighbors. Viva la
