Zombies only animate
On a scary Halloween.
If that night were abolished
They would never more be seen.

Don't know if it would eat me
If I met one on that night.
I'll not die from not knowing
But I might die from the fright.

They can't be dead but not dead,
Nor alive but not alive.
I wonder if they'd be stung
If they bumped into bee-hive.

If you like ghosts and goblins
Then you might like zombies too.
But as for me I'll dodge all three
And just leave them all for you.

This Halloween I'll wear a mask 
As ugly as it can be
So if I meet a Zombie
He will be more scared of me.
