A Zombie Poem for Flu Season…



I’m working on a novel right now. It’s a dystopian sci-fi young adult romantic adventure set somewhere in the future, you know… ‘cause we need more of those.

This led me to read again, for the first time in a while, my zombie poems.

So, here’s one for you, for Saturday, for flu season, and for whimsy.

And if this poem finds you actually suffering from this horrible flu, remember, at least it’s just making you horribly sick not turning you into a zombie. Things could be much much worse.


I’m glad it’s not really possible.
There’s enough to worry about with
Sick days
Missed meetings
Coughing contagions
All over my
Near and dear
Without the risk of immortality.
I had a bug last year.
If I hadn’t gotten better
I would’ve lived forever
In soulless limbo.
Good thing I got my
Flu shot.

I’ll post more of these here and there, but if you just can’t wait to sink your teeth into more you can purchase a kindle or paperback version on Amazon, links on the Writings page.
