Re: Your Brains

Avatar Author: Twyst "badass" Read Bio

Heya, Tom’ it’s Bob from the office down the hall
Good to see you, buddy; how’ve you been?
Thing have been OK for me except that I’m a zombie now
I really wish you’d let us in
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
But here’s an FYI: you’re all gonna die screaming
I don’t want to nitpick, Tom, but is this really your plan?
To spend your whole life locked inside a mall?
Maybe that’s OK for now but someday you’ll be out of food and guns
And then you’ll have to make the call
I’m not surprised to see you haven’t thought it through enough
You never had the head for all that bigger picture stuff
But, Tom, that’s what I do, and I plan on eating you slowly
All we want to do is eat your brains
We’re not unreasonable; I mean, no one’s gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We’re at an impasse here; maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We’ll all come inside and eat your brains

    i didnt see how the last line kept to the blank verse theme
    That line just doesnt do it for me…

    Only credit I take is getting the word out on Johnathan Coulton.

    a certain game comes to mind.. with a mall, and zombies..Every time he repeats himself, i picture him hitting the glass mall doors full force.

    Jonathan Coulton kicks ass.
    his song at the end of Portal= awesome.

    I’m at work, so I can’t follow the link. So, this is a song by someone else that you’ve copied the lyrics to? It’s funny, I mean creating a rather intellectual free verse poem from the perspective of a brain-eating zombie.

    i was thinking more along the lines of dawn of the dead, i believe thats the movie where they trap themselves in a mall for safety.
