U is for…

Welcome to Day 21 of your Essential Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse… We’re on the home stretch now. Final week. Finish line in sight. If you think this has been a long month as a reader, you should try sitting this side of the screen!

It will come as a surprise to few that I plan on collating these guides, along with some extras (can you believe I forgot to do a post about “toilets”, under “T”???), into my first self-published book! So, if you think I made a grievous error in not including something earlier in the guide, or have any wisdom about self-publishing to pass on, please let me know in the comments. I’ll share any further news on this as it develops. Am on a bit of a learning curve, as ever… 🙂

Without further ado, it’s … Haiku of the Dead!

Zombies are ugly
But people’s true ugliness
Is often inside

Observe everything
Anything unusual
Usually bad news

In emergency,
If your home is invaded
By the zombie horde

Have an axe ready,
Head upstairs, and smash the stairs
So they can’t follow

(This only works though
If you’ve planned an escape route
Before they break in!)

Hiding underground
In sewers or tube tunnels
Is best avoided

Would you want to face
Hordes of the groaning undead
With all the lights off??


“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. I’m going to miss this sage advice so I’m thrilled that I will be able to purchase the guide to keep in a readily accessible place in preparation for the future.

  2. ‘Ugliness is more often inside than outside.’ Just for this I would pick zombies over humans…but I can barely bring myself to watch the walking dead so..yeah! I loved this. Glad to have gotten to your site today.
