Zombie Sonnets, because nobody ever said you had to write about flowers.

Zombie Sonnet 5: Zombies at the State Fair

The entrance workers try to stamp their hand
To grant them access through that steely gate,
But zombies lack the flesh enough to brand
So bracelets for the kids become their fate.The Zombie Sonnets
But once inside, the zombies get on par.
They win at goldfish, tossing plastic rings,
And try to keep their limbs inside the car,
While gazing at the view the Sky Ride brings.
In dodging llama spit they make a mess,
And overtake the funhouse playing tricks.
But vendors like the hungry zombies best,
For zombies love to eat their food on sticks.
They get a kick from pictures that they take,
Those cardboard human cutouts take the cake.
