1632 – Undead Family Portrait

Undead Family Portrait
I applaud the photographer for committing to taking the picture.

Mom the Zombie

Our mommy mostly moans
in dull and dulcet tones
with gurgles, grunts, and groans.
Her skin grows cold and clammy…
…there’s something wrong with Mammy.

Oh what a mess, that hair!
That glaze-y, gaze-y stare:
awake, but no one’s there.
She’s chasing after brother.
There’s something wrong with mother.

A slow but steady slog.
A head too full of fog.
Her color: green as frog.
A zombie dearest mother
(who tried to eat my brother).
