Ode to Zombies

Rising from the dead with a scent like rotting garbage 
Always a tad bit sideways limping on one leg 
Trailing through a small town leaving a lot of carnage
For the taste of human brains you forever will beg
The grunts and growls escaping from your mouth are buzzing through my mind
I’m trying to figure out why you always create a crime
The decaying skin across your body sheds and falls behind
I don’t know why you fascinate me but to decipher that I’ll take my time

Scarlet red and dripping from your mouth
The blood drips down as if it’s from a faucet
Head cocked crooked like a sound came from the south
Dropping your hand you tell me just to toss it
As we walk your structure falls apart 
Limbs falling like rain how can you not be in pain
You’ve just lost your foot and now I’m pushing you in a cart

    How cool this is, Devin, and you are through round one of Soup's big contest with this one! Congrats for that. Do you watch "The Walking Dead" I think it's on AMC. An awesome show.
