Zombies are Coming to Town

Don’t bar the doors.
But oil the floors.
The Zombies are coming to town.

Ignoring pains.
They seek your brains.
The Zombies are coming to town.

They may lack IQ
or strong kung fu,
but they’re relentless in roaming herds.

Here are some tips
for avoiding their grips
Do these things and you’ll avoid their grasp:

Walk do not run.
Load your shotgun.
Wash your hands, employee or not.

Don’t stand by a cliff,
or take a big whiff.
The undead smell surprisingly dead.

Don’t lock yourself in a room,
armed with a broom,
and be surprised when one sticks a head in all,”here’s Johnny!”

Avoid confusion.
Just seek seclusion.
Garlic, stakes, crosses, and silver won’t save you.

Should you get bit,
just accept it.
Get some fava beans and a right nice Chianti.

    It would be awesome to take this poem, and add a metal beat breakdown for each verse. Then any between each verse have just the drums beating. Do the whole thing in a minute. Badass.
