Zombie Haiku Contest

Over 400 haiku written on the subject of zombies, over at Boing Boing.

One of my favorites (of course, I didn’t read them all):

I have eaten of
The brains you left in the fridge
Forgive me: I hunger.

Even though the syllables are technically incorrect, it’s clearly written in homage to the poem by William Carlos Williams entitled “This is Just to Say”:

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

I also like this one (#296), from “If Famous Poets Wrote Zombie Haiku”:

Do not go gentle
into that zombie plagued night.
And take the shotgun.

Left to me, Thomas might instead write:

Grave men, after death
Their blind eyes seek only life
Rage, rage in the night
