Zombie Land

Early in the morning 
When the sun's a zombie gray.
I wear my zombie costume
And start my zombie day.

I follow other zombie-kids
Who drag their zombie feet,
And zombie-walk along the road
To where the zombies meet.

There may be other living kids 
Within the zombie hordes,
But they're too scared to show themselves 
Before our zombie lords.

I stick my body stiff and bent 
Upon my zombie chair
And freeze my eyeballs forward
In a zombie-stricken stare.

And when the slouching zombie-kids
Undroop or lurch around,
I raise my hand and zombie-groan,
Then sit without a sound.

I sit and dream of summer days
Beneath a swelling sun.
I dream that I am free to play
In fellowship and fun.

But here I fear I'll lose my brain
Within this zombie hell.
Oh please, before I go insane,
Please ring the recess bell!


  1. what is H.E.D. oz's full name I'm doing a project about him/her please answer by 2/7/14

    1. Hi there, Haylee. H. E. D. Oz is a pseudonym. I made it up, so "H. E. D." actually stands for parts of my secret real name. Sorry I didn't see you message before February 7. I hope you had fun with your project, nevertheless. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  2. can you tell me about yourself thats all i need

  3. Sure! I live in Ontario in Canada where I teach literature. I'm happiest when at the cottage reading and writing, paddling in the canoe, and listening to the loons. I've tried hard not to grow up.

    Anything else you'd like to know?
