Zombie Horrorscope

Ares battles against the swarm.
Cursing loud with little charm.
Soon his face is being chewed.
By a zombie with the name tag ‘dude’.

Taurus makes a stand alone.
Every chance to run is blown.
He will be eaten to the core.
Once zombies bash down his door.

Gemini stays within the groups.
Surrounding himself with several dupes.
One day the others found his plot.
Instead of eaten, he has been shot.

Cancer runs to live and breathe.
Lack of sleep making her heave.
She will be eaten upon collapse.
By zombies clothed in dirty scraps.

Leo gathers those in need.
A brave hero who steps up to lead.
He will be eaten and peeled like a grape.
Allowing others to escape.

Virgo stresses while she hides.
Dreaming of her chewed insides.
She wanders out to find a meal.
Then dined on by zombies with hungry zeal.

Libra designs a house of traps.
Always carrying her bag of maps.
Never straying far from base.
Some day will be gone without a trace.

Scorpio rushes in to kill and flee.
Splattering zombies with childish glee.
Like Ares she will be killed with ease.
When zombies descend on her like bees.

Sagittarius tries to blend into the horde.
Stiffly moving to be ignored.
A dangerous move that will not pay off.
He is dinner with a single cough.

Capricorn decides to stay up high.
Believing the ground is where he’ll die.
He tries to be careful to avoid a goof.
Zombies will shred him on the roof.

Aquarius leaves the cities quick.
Wanting open space to run full click.
Her end will come as she takes a nap.
Never hearing her warning twigs snap.

Pisces tries to stay at sea.
Surviving on caught fish and tea.
Nowhere within in sight of shore.
A monster storm makes him no more.

(This is part of a project I did last year where I wrote and posted a poem once a day for an entire year. I think I’m going to post the better of them as time goes on.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
