No Rewrites (b-3)

“It’s taken awhile but it’s a good first draft.” FIRST DRAFT? “Well, yeah. Like not killing is great but we’ve got nothing about GENERAL violence, like head butts or groin kicks.

The Crisis

The prey’s shoes pounded pavement. Zom-boy pursued.

Finally showed up again - but maybe not for you (blasphemy 2)

“O.k. Bobby, so where’s this guy I ‘just gotta see’?” “Oh, hey Jimmy, he’s over on that hill telling stories.” “Telling stories? Like ‘The Moth’? I love that podcast.” “No, not like that.

"2, 3, 5, 7, Zom-boy skips the others?" asked Tina.

"He'll eat 'em eventually," said Mother "he just prefers PRIME rib."

"Wake up kids" Mother chirped "early bird gets the worm!"
"Zom-boy slept in" said Tina "could already open a bait shop."

But I brought what you asked for... aaaaarrrrgghhhh! :)

A madman joined

Examination

3 a.m., a sleepless night, again.
Unending questioning.

Klut-z

Lifeless yet clueless
He clutches at air, runs into walls
Pity the one eyed zombie
Tragically lacking death perception

Skirt on the stairs.
Bra in the hallway.
