N is for…

Welcome to Day Fourteen of your Essential Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.  We all know the end is coming. Well, 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 all the way from A to Z… You need … Haiku of the Dead!

Parents of new-borns
Have sleepless nights to deal with
PLUS finding nappies!
(Diapers to my American friends)

A sad truth for me:
Nerds won’t inherit the Earth,
Unless they act too.

Ninjas could do well,
Especially with a sword
And the nimblest feet.

All street lighting off
The nights darker than ever
Bathe in glow of stars

Nature finds a way,
Planet Earth takes a breather.
It needed the break

The new world order
Will rise from zombie ashes
A tender phoenix

No Netflix and chill,
Nights spent bingeing on boxsets.
Do we dare to… talk?


“You wrote this as part of a month-long challenge? What?!”

Throughout April, I will be joining 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-cliché -really path of zombie survival tips… in haiku.

With tongue firmly in cheek, I hope you will join me for the month, and beyond 🙂

There are hundreds of blogs participating – over 1700. 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

  1. Pardon me, whilst I bathe in the glow of stars… fluffy towels on the warming rack… oversized robe laid out on the chaise… Calgon, take me away…
