I awake with an unquenchable hunger
Hot bodied flesh is now all that I crave
I'm destined to be another zombie
A nightmare from beyond the grave
My appearance is beyond hideous
I walk with a wandering sluggish stroll
I am only able to make a raspy gurgle
To eat another's flesh is my ultimate goal
I walk aimlessly until I smell fresh blood
Attack mode takes over, no self control
Sinking my teeth into your sweet skin
Claiming your body and your soul

I'll be right here when you awaken
We can stroll and gurgle in sync
No more stress and life worries
For you'll no longer have to think

As you lie waiting to become a zombie
A dreadful fate that is justly unkind
Know that you will also partake
In the extinction of mankind

    this is most interesting in that you made the zombie someone who is finding good reasons to change people into zombies. I much enjoyed this.
