Zombies!

These zombies all stumbled forward

blank expressions on their faces

minutes before rushing to their work

a busy midweek day in the city

no warning of that deadly infection

that came in a fine vapour

sprayed from a plane far overhead

creating the living dead!

 

A few minutes after it dropped to ground

it had completely evaporated

thousands contaminated in the one strike

so many more at first unaffected

confronted with hoards of flesh-eating

beasts that many had known before

who chased without hesitation or any pity

as violent death came to the city!

 

From their headquarters through cameras

observed their experiments

relishing the success with a contented smirk

scientists and dark suited elite

satisfied the virus created was the solution

their aim controlled de-population

but rapid mutation had not been anticipated

it would make their plans complicated!

 

Their initial assessment a total miscalculation

as even rodents transported it

to once safe protected areas of their families

a pandemic now out of control

with no anti-viral antidote for their protection

the privileged migrated below ground

for conservation into pre-built cities and sealed

from their abominations were shield!

 

Leaving the masses wandering as the living dead

was not part of their cunning plans

being trapped like prisoners deep under the earth

had decided to reclaim the surface

prepared teams cautiously made their way back up

as all communications were cut

so there was no advance warning of what to expect

or from what dangers themselves to protect!

 

As the massive blast doors slowly opened prepared

after ten years to see daylight and death

for any situation together that moment each shared

in unison took that first surface breath

yet nothing could brace any of them for what waited!

Graves Of The Dead!

The Teenagers were passing the grave yard

on a late summers evening.

Thinking it would be great fun to explore

the graves of the dead!

Young and foolish crossed the threshold

into decay and mould.

 

Large black birds were settling on grave stones

others flew menacingly above.

They should not have mocked those who passed

or broken into the church.

But amongst deep shadows and wooden beams

the girls let out piercing screams!

 

More Birds hung low above their heads menacingly

terrifying in their presence.

As the group tried to leave cowled figures hovered

then vanished as they ran out!

But this added to their excitement a bigger thrill

as the earth was no longer still!

 

No respect for where they were now a new game

playing hide and seek.

Pushing over headstones trampling the flowers

now dark they didn’t care!

Thinking the grave yard their new playground

but something nasty they’d found.

 

From a grave in the far corner earth now parted

it rose to an erect position.

They were all distracted and didn’t see it coming

one moved away from the rest.

This vengeful living dead took his victims heart

as they intended to depart.

 

Searching for their mate didn’t expect to find

his body on the path!

Fun turned to fear as they ran to the low wall

but none could escape.

In different directions they frantically went

but evil on them was intent!

 

The busy vicar came very early the next day

seeing the graves were in disarray.

Shocked that anybody would do such a thing

and telephoned the cops.

Who found four deceased bodies and two living

but mad had the evil been forgiving!

 

No suspects were ever found for the crime!

but nobody played near the graves again!
