Barricaded in a basement with beer belly guy
(he hopes "that the dark meat gets et first"),
two smokers, and seven
upstanding members
of Rev'rend Revelation's
End Times Church -

the zombies are bad,
but this is worse.

Holed up in a house with a half can of decaf
and a blonde with a yippy little Pom in her purse
that she baby talks
until each "puppy wuppy"
scrapes and scalpels the stretch of my nerves -

the zombies are bad,
but, damn!

This is worse.

For Izy's prompt at Real Toads

Excellent verse! Very appropriate for the season and considering the zombie craze going on. I think some people actually believe it all. Wait with anticipation for "End Times" so they can get some excitement in their life.

Oh, yes!! Worse indeed! No one says it better, MZ!

Gail said...

At least you know how to stop the zombies!

Well done.

LMAO. As Sartre so famously said, 'Hell is just other people,' and they might be far far worse alive than dead. Played for laughs but some serious smackdown of those types we produce so well these days--all packaged with sharp crafting.

The zombies seem to get their way. It puts more hurt but boldness of a few can make things interesting. Great lines MZ!

Damn straight. It's like voting for the Democrat in Florida.

MZ--I am just laughing and laughing here--this is just wonderful. I especially enjoyed the beer belly. Crazy. This is just terrific stuff. Thanks much. (I've had rather an awful night, so I really especially appreciated this, this morning.) k.

Hahaha! This is how I view most every occasion in which I am forced into social intercourse.

Helen said...

Wow-ee .. never want to go there! Though, I think I've been there once or twice in my life.

Hannah said...

Exactly! I was thinking about that awful it would be to be stuck somewhere...(with folks like these!!), and I actually thought what would suck the most was if there wasn't any coffee...
Nicely captured, Mama Zen!
