For all my poetry-loving, zombie-killing pals, have I got something for you.
The Web site for the book includes a list of zombie haiku by celebrities including other horror writers, comedians and poet laureates.
Here’s an example of one of the celebrity submissions.
“Back to the buffet
for second helpings-
Care for a rump of infant?”
– Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate and author of the lovely Ballistics: Poems
There are also haiku written in the style of famous poets past.
“Zombie Haiku by Robert Frost
Two lobes in the skull.
I eat the bloodier one –
not much difference.”
It looks like a bloody, brainy fun read.
Lots of people give poetry books for Valentine’s Day. Don’t you think Newscoma would appreciate such a gift?
