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
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
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
