A is for…Apocalypse!

Welcome to Day One of your Essential Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.

We all know it’s coming – there’s no point in pretending otherwise. Some have even interpreted the rise of Donald Trump as a herald of the end of days (either that, or a reaction of those feeling disenfranchised by the current status quo against the political classes’ refusal to engage with the issues as they see them, and rallying behind a figure they perceive to be successful, powerful, and speaking their language… or something like that).

Point is, the end is coming, you gotta be prepared, and you ain’t gonna have time to memorise a whole bunch of stuff when it happens.

You need a short guide to surviving the rise of the undead, covering you from A to Z.

You need… Haiku of the Dead.


Apocalypse NOW!
Better run; find food; shelter:
The dead have risen!

Achieve survival.
Human race depends on you.
Don’t let people down



“You wrote thisย as part of a month-long challenge? What?! Is this an April Fools joke?”

Throughout April, I will be joiningย the A to Z Challenge, posting six days a week to cover each letter of the alphabet… even that annoying “X”… For my theme, I have gone down the well-trodden, stereotypical, bit-of-a-clichรฉ -really path of zombie survival tips… in haiku.

With tongue firmly in cheek, I hope you will join me for the month, and beyond ๐Ÿ™‚

There are literally hundreds of blogs participating – over 1500 in fact. I will be doing my best to check out as many of these as possible. You can too via this link: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/a-z-challenge-sign-up-list-2016.html

    • A-…no (the grammar pedant in me wouldn’t allow “a-e”, or “a-i”, for example)
      I think the three-pointed challenge of alphabet, PLUS haiku, PLUS zombies, is plenty for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Well, seeing as how there are only 26 letters in the alphabet and there are 30 days in April, I think you are entitled to 4 passes… use them wisely
