(Quatrains I wrote with Jack Horne. BTW, Zompire is a word invented by Jack and both of us like vampire/zombie stories!) I didn't sleep a wink last night And tossed and turned in bed; As morning came I swear I was Just like the Living Dead. In fact, when I went out the door, Into the morning sun, I cringed! My skin felt like a steak About to be well done. A zompire I'd become, you see, And now when it is day, I'm sleeping (but I never slept At night time anyway!) OUR TANKA Not able to sleep I went to the bathroom and Looked in the mirror. . . I now have no reflection The Dawn of the Living Dead Andrea Dietrich with Jack Horne, written Sept 14, 2013 For Shadow Hamilton's New Contest Team Work Poetry Contest

    You have to be a real horror story lover to come up with a name like zompire. I get it. You can add me to your list of vampire lovers. I'm just getting into zombies, but I've been a vampire fan since I was just a tyke. You combined the two quite nicely.

    Zompire? What can I say besides something conpleatly childish being a monster fan myself. Your Zompire should be eaten by one of Sharon's trolls.
