Zombie Car Lot

Last year we went shopping on Halloween
To find a new car for my lovely queen

Sadly when we arrived onto the lot
A ghastly salesman appeared on the spot

He thrust his hand in too close to my face
I shouted out, “Run before he gives chase.”

In the showroom we felt safe and secure
Until I was grabbed by the manager

Her face was pale and her eyes were all red
My wife thought she was of the walking dead

Her nails dug in my skin with a chilling grip
Yet, as she mumbled we gave her the slip

We ran over to a nice shiny car
But were waylaid by a man with a scar

He groaned and gave us a sales zombie stare
So I quickly uttered the good Lord’s Prayer

I pushed my wife in the car; then it locked
Plus I read the window and got sticker shock

I banged on the glass, “Hey honey let me in.
There are more salesmen approaching the din.”

She was helpless in there without a key
I had to act fast; it was up to me.

I yelled, “We’ll take it,” to one of the curs
Then was hauled in to the loan officer

They wrenched every fact from my weary life
I had to placate to rescue my wife

I then heard a hushed scream out on the floor
They must have gotten to her through the door

I signed the papers, though at a high price
Then dashed between two guys as cold as ice.

I shoved salesmen aside and joined my hon
But slammed the door on a big warty thumb 

The sales zombie shrieked and quickly pursued
Though with his hand wedged, he was tough to elude

We then sent that sales zombie right on his a$$
Just before our car smashed through the plate glass

When my wife asked how much was on the loan
I went into shock and drove lifelessly home.
