Rhetorical Zombies

by Panos Mamoulian

Part 1 : Existence !

-

Are we love machines

Or just human beings

A whole new race,

Can I find your trace?

-

It's a disease, and we have it,

We know it and yet we love it.

-

My leader lives in an isolated fruit stall

Should I call him Boss?

Or Mr. Darth Maul?

-

Like Shakespeare said

Love is blind, and zombies cannot see.

We just smell and

then, all humans cease to be.

-

We can't swim

We can't cry

But we have emotions

That make us wanna learn to "re-die".

-

Death for us is

A reason to live

We enjoy it as much as

beef with cheese.

-

What do you prefer?

We got all kinds of beasts

Fatties, tongues, the likes,

Giants with cleaves,

Topless without sleeves.

-

Cannibalism, has made us this way

Romero, that basterd, will pay.

Control us, oh master dominator

Romero, you great creator.

-

Part 2 : March in battle !

-

We live among the undead

Are we skeletons or just plain red?

Creatures that still live. Want to kill,

What have you got to eat in that smokin' grill?

-

And when I say GO!

I mean, eat humans to death.

Taste their guts,

Make a blood omelet.

-

I'm Todd and this is Katy,

Prepare for devastation.

We can make perfect zombie characters

In a fictional movie adaptation.

-

The angry mob is here, let's attack

Humans you are all

a filthy nut sack.

-

Make a huge formation

Raise our hands like Michael Jackson

But don't get a nose implantation.

-

Bring your Chainsaw, bring your guns

I don't even care

If you are the so called Ash.

-

Part 3 : Feed, Brothers !

-

We starve to death

Any moment

With every smelly breath.

-

We feed with skin and bones,

Kidneys for main dish.

All the other greasy stuff, blows,

Couldn't we just eat fish?

-

That's because we don't have a brain

See? Zombies are the Arch-Villain.

-

Watch my companion

With his brains all scattered

Got shot in the head, brain-dead.

The human who shot him,

just made his deathbed.

-

One of those pleasures,

feast on that flesh

chew it, spit it,

and then sphincter fresh.

-

When we hear noises

We go towards there

Sometimes we can't find food

Sometimes it's a Dragon's Lair.

-

Part 4 : FACTS

-

Get killed by shotgun

It's the most common kill.

But for the most part we like it

'coz It still can't make us feel.

-

You can find us in malls, park stations

There is no other place.

Can't dock, can't run

We always walk at a steady pace.

-

Infected? Yes we are

But so are you, reading all these.

Because this language,

Can be understood only by the diseased.
