Q is for…

Welcome to Day Seventeen (already?) of your Essential Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.  We all know the end is coming, but that’s no excuse for turning into a quivering wreck about the whole affair.

So, here continues your quixotic guide to surviving the rise of the undead, covering you all the way from A to Z… It’s … Haiku of the Dead!


Prepare for the worst
Set up a quarantine zone
Contain those bitten

Always keep count of
Quantities of your rations
And local zombies

Zombies’ hearing works.
Any noise will attract them:
Live a quiet life

Zombies are not quick
Either in thought or movement
So play to your strengths

When down by the lake,
Hunting, fishing, keep your wits:
Zombie ducks don’t quack!



“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
