Holiday (Zombie) Haiku

Over at Christopher Moore's blog he has some zombie haiku for the holidays, since Christmas is the time for getting together as a family to ward off invading zombie hordes. Or it could be because of his book, The Stupidest Angel, which depicts a small town that is overrun by zombies when a young boy sees (a fake) Santa killed and prays that Santa will be brought back to life to save Christmas. The Stupidest Angel answers his prayers, kind of. Instead of just resurecting Santa, he ends up raising all of the town's dead.

He envites readers to add their own zombie haiku. Here's mine:

Shovel through the leg
Chainsaw through left arm from damn
Far sighted slayer

Darkness all around
Woke up too late, need to feed
Stuck inside coffin

The Stupidest Angel is perhaps my favorite of all of his books. :)

Am I infected?
Can't think, hands are numb and gray.
The horde shambles by.

Gamey reindeer flesh
Sugary sweet workshop elves
Zombie Santa lives!
