Poetry – We’re There For You

We’re There For You.


The Zombie Apocalypse is coming down my street,

Emptying the shelves and shuffling their feet.

They’ve all got the vacant eyes and scary grasping hands;

Having lost their brains they’re relying on their glands.


It’s like a computer game that is happening for real.

We used to play for fun and enjoy developing the skill,

But now it isn’t funny! It’s like Hamlet and Macbeth.

The Zombie Apocalypse is a game of life and death.


They are using shopping trolleys as weapons of war.

Fighting over toilet rolls and emptying the store.

Grabbing what they can and clearing every shelf.

The Zombie Apocalypse just cares about itself.


But a message came through my door

That nearly knocked me to the floor.

Anything I can do?

You know we’re there for you!
