The Zombies are coming
They’re chasing me
I need a newstart
I know you’ll agree.

A new town to live in
Far, far away
Where zombies and monsters
Aren’t looking to stay.

Gas up the car
Get ready to go
They’re on their way
They can walk thru the snow.

Nothing will stop them
Not snow and not ice
Don’t try to get close
Don’t think they are nice.

They’re half dead and hardy
They’re looking for food.
They want to eat us
They’re relentless and crude.

You’ll never outrun them
They keep on a coming
They never give up
They’re persistent and cunning.

So get into the car
Let’s get out of here
I think I can smell them
I think they are near.

Their bodies have rotted
You can smell the decay
We have to escape them
We must drive away.

Hurry don’t linger
There isn’t much time
They’re on our trail
And, not far behind.

  1. Nice job, Patty! You immediately brought to my mind the Irish rock band The Cranberries, whose lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan, recently died far too early at the age of 46. You brought them to mind because their biggest hits in the US were “Linger” and “Zombie”. If you haven’t heard them before, do yourself a favor and look them up on YouTube then let me know what you think.

    1. Will do, Denny! My son is visiting me this week…from Houston, Texas. I told him about the prompt. I read him my response. He thought it was fine, but…… He said, “You should write about zombies”…….. He thought that would be more interesting. 🙂 BTW …..loved your co-writing with Em! A great story!
