ZOMBIE POeT

If I was a zombie and still wrote poetry
it would be filled with shuffling feet and stumble just like me
Like me, it would have little meaning
and irritate like low pitched keening

It would wander aimlessly.....about
on reading it most folks would SHOUT
then run away in private fear
that such a thing had gotten near

I suspect typos would run rife
from fingers now devoid of life
at least I'd have an excuse
for all of my present miscues

And I could not do spoken word
with lips picked off by a black bird
also I fear my avatar
would frighten babies from afar

I reckon my muse would be dead
from living in my rotted head
If I was a dead zombie
I'd still write a lOt likE me

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
OK this was written just for fun but if you can add to it or offer ideas let's hear them.
Editing stage:

We must be too late to help..
Not heard of any Zombie care homes or Hospitals.
Have you got insurance for this, if not well ????
I know that will be the first thing they will ask for.
I am trying to think of where you would be better off.
I have a spare parts catalogue but nothing under Z.
I have researched the net for you and have found some beings.
These may be able to help you as there are many Zombie chapters.
Zombie Squad is made up of a network of chapters around the world. They are the outreaching tentacles of the Zombie Squad organization under the authority of ZS Board of Directors at ZS Head Quarters.
I hope this will be of help to you and I hope that they have a cure,
As your writing is top line and we would have to have a bloody election again,
Yours Ian.T

So find more reasons to believe in others..

Since he has promised everything else perhaps this affliction will be insured by zobama care lol. Guess I'm lucky though. In this condition I could never be prosecuted for attempted rape. Charge would have to be reduced to assault with a dead weapon. ....................stan

This is laugh out loud funny, but don't sell yourself short... unless it's for a poem.

Out of control? LOL. I think I'm gonna do a series on zombies, vampires, werewolves and any other subject which is flooding the old boob tube lately. Hopefully they will all turn out at least OK.........stan

I was thinking of writing one on vampire after reading your piece but got stuck there so I write one entitled "priceless" instead...

Alid

Then we can compare whose is the bloodiest.

maybe we need a monthly topic so that we can compare the many differences in our poets, and see if we can find something that is area bound, in that do the Texans write differently from the NY people about the same subject, or is it just a personal thing,

LOL. I guess it might be fun to all write a poem from the perspective of a vampire. I guess so we can all find others' poem easily we could all use the same title "Vampire poet". But since I got this thing started why don't ya'll do a zombie one first?

author comment

one on zombie, i think it will either turn out nonsensical or silly....oh i dunno.

Alid

Not all poetry has to be deep and serious. THIS poem is pretty nonsensical and silly...........stan

author comment

Take care, Yours Ian.T
