It's April...

...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.

Happy Reading!


  1. :) Fans of The Walking Dead (including me) should love this one!

    1. It's the world from the zombie's POV and it's great.

  2. I love those haikus you shared! Especially the one about "brains" - LOL! Must be The Walking Dead fan in me :)

    1. There are some good haiku about his mom, too. But the brains one is a fav. Glad you enjoyed it.

  3. That's so funny! Who says poetry can't be fun?? :)

  4. 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.
