Zombies, astral, mental and metaphoric

Zombies, astral and metaphoric
The zombie I like the most
Is the Zombie astral.
It’s typical residence is a bottle
Which Voodoo bokor can sell it for luck
Not at all a trouble maker 
Feed him with salt 
Will obey to return to its grave.

But there are zombies as metaphor
Difficult to handle mindless inclined to mindless
Adherence to authorities
And now in modern times we have a new
Metaphorical Zombie, the forms of hacker
Virus like Trojan horse
Ever disobedient in character

Most entertaining but less frightening
Are the made-up zombies
and the most obedient ones
As all are familiar with zombie kits,
Fake skin mixture, creamy face fainted
Fake blood makers, with stipple sponge
