I’m Dreaming Of A Zombie Christmas

ZombiesI’m dreaming

Of a Zombie Christmas,

And not sleeping well,

Which blows.

When I close my eyes,

I can only hear

Hungry Zombies

Trudging through the snow.

I’m dreaming

Of a Zombie Christmas

Haunted by nightmares

Bloody and gray,

They stink of rotting flesh

And humanity’s decay.

I’m dreaming

Of a Zombie Christmas

So what the hell

Is wrong with me?

Is my subconscious

Reprimanding me

For not putting up

A tree?

I’m dreaming

Of a Zombie Christmas,

And I don’t know

If that’s Naughty or Nice.

All I know

Is that Zombies chase me,

Through knee deep snow

And cracking ice.

I’m dreaming

Of a Zombie Christmas,

I blame it on

The Walking Dead.

It’s Rick and Maggie

And Daryl’s fault

That I’ve got

Walkers in my head.

I’m dreaming

Of a Zombie Christmas,

And I don’t know

What to do.

Is there such a thing

As Zombie Hanukkah?

Maybe I’d sleep better

As a Jew…

About Austin

  1. Christmas ninja is not happy with your flagrantly nontraditional Christmas!

    I don’t think you have to fear Jewish Zombies. They probably won’t even consider attacking a potential victim for their brains unless the victim finished a law school or a medical school.

    now you are moving into the hallowed territory of poetry… welcome err! i think. topic bit unusual but hey you might start a whole new genre that makes squillions….Just make sure you get your royalties .

  4. JED says:

    Are zombies even slower in the snow? Can snowballs if aimed just right take them out permanently? These are important things to know during a Zombie Christmas.

  5. NotAPunkRocker says:

    Hey, we don’t blame Daryl for anything, OK? We blame, um, Carl! That’s it..blame Carl.
