...which means it is also National Poetry Month. To honor the occasion, I decided to read a poem or two and post them here, but then I saw this particular book of poetry and I just couldn't resist:
|Zombie Haiku by Ryan Mecum|
What does a poet do when he turns into a zombie? He chronicles his descent into mindless flesh-eating hunger with a series of clever and funny (and sometimes disgusting) haiku. Talk about creative! This 139-page book is hilarious, and I loved it! Here are a few of my favorite zombie haiku:
My town is broken.
From this view, I see the end.
Below, they gather.
There's nothing quite like
the pain you feel while dying--
switching to hunger.
I keep saying "brains".
I remember other words,
but I just need one.
:) Fans of The Walking Dead (including me) should love this one!ReplyDelete
It's the world from the zombie's POV and it's great.Delete
I love those haikus you shared! Especially the one about "brains" - LOL! Must be The Walking Dead fan in me :)ReplyDelete
There are some good haiku about his mom, too. But the brains one is a fav. Glad you enjoyed it.Delete
That's so funny! Who says poetry can't be fun?? :)ReplyDelete
This book definitely made me laugh. :)Delete
This is so funny!! I know someone I need to send the "Brains" haiku to. Kudos to the author for this clever idea. Thanks for posting.ReplyDelete
