Surgery and Silly Zombies

There just isn’t going to be much of a post today. Last Tuesday my youngest had his tonsils removed. Then, my oldest turned 18 on Friday and my wife had her birthday on Saturday (Did you notice that I didn’t mention her age? Very important survival tactic.). What with taking care of family and celebrating I don’t have much to report. This is all you get.

However, a week or two ago @TheaIsis was tweeting about being down and needing a boost. I responded that she should consider, “What if Dr. Suess had been a horror writer?” This also spawned a conversation with my lovely wife as well as a really odd dream. So here is my take on Dr. Suess and Zombies.  I hope you enjoy it.

The Zombie Book

One Zombie, Two Zombie

Three Zombie, Four

All Trying To Claw

Through Your Bedroom Door

—–

In Your Yard

And On The Street

There Are So Many Zombies

You Don’t Want To Meet

—–

Some Zombies Crawl

And Some Zombies Walk

But So Far We Haven’t

Heard One Zombie Talk

—–

This Zombie Runs

And That One Can Jump

And Here Is Another

Hiding Inside Your Trunk

—–

On The Roof

Or Across The Street

There Are So Many Zombies

You Don’t Want To Meet

—–

Zombies In The Air

And Some On The Stair

But Here Is One Fellow

Who Has Flaming Hair

—–

Zombies On The Ground

And A Few At The Pound

Some Zombies Even Like

To Ride The Merry-Go-Round

—–

Some Zombies Like Women

And Some Like Boy Bands

And Here Sits One Fellow

Who Chews On His Hands

—–

If You Are Stuck On A Plane

Or Inside A Train

There Will Still Be A Zombie

To Chew On Your Brain

—–

If You Must Go Outside

Better Carry A Gun

And If The Zombies Show Up

Still Be Ready To Run

—–

Since They Nibble Your Fingers

And Chew On Your Feet

There Are So Many Zombies

You Don’t Want To Meet

      I have heard that a couple of times now. I may have to do some more of this with other monsters. It is a blast to write. Thanks.

    Too funny! This would make a fantastic picture book for grownups.

      I am glad you liked it. Thank you.

      That is a great idea. If I had an artist that was interested in doing it I would be more than happy to write more of this.

      Know anyone?

    hugs to your youngest!

    The zombie homage to Seuss is a hoot!

      Thanks and I will pass on that hug as soon as I see him. I am at work and he is at Grandma’s.
