MY BEST FRIEND, THE ZOMBIE (Day 20 - My___, the ___)

You used to be more fun, back
When you had a pulse. We'd grown
Close, but then you died, sort of.
Now it's all the time: "Brains! Brains!"
And the moaning and groaning
Is annoying! And the smell!

Honey, a little perfume
Wouldn't kill you! Actually
Nothing would kill you, you're dead!
Sort of. Maybe you should try
To exfoliate. Your skin
Keeps falling off everywhere.

By the way, gray and decay 
Are not the new black. Really.
And green, is definitely
Not a good color for you.
You know I'll always love you,
But some things have got to change.

Caren E. Salas
