    EARTH A.Z. (AFTER ZOMBIE) by Brian Rosenberger
    November 30, 2007  Poetry   Tags:   

    Come forth
    thundered heaven
    the summons heard
    they did

    what better way
    to plague man
    than with man
    neither locust nor flies
    nor darkness would
    suffice this go round

    some called it
    the Year of the Toad
    as certain amphibians
    lie dormant during
    dry seasons returning
    with the rains just as
    they returned casting
    off their shrouds of Earth
    no longer captives
    to the ground
    others, less poetic,
    named it
    the Year Without End

    they came

    some crawling
    some on rotted stumps
    shambling mounds of decayed flesh
    skeletons of their former selves

    they saw

    at least the ones still in possession
    of theirs eyes did
    others, victim to the worm and time,
    made their way on instinct
    even a blind predator
    will find prey

    they digested

    as much as toothless jaws,
    jawless faces and
    bloodless, nonfunctioning
    organs would allow

    It was a resurrection parade
    like no other
    recycled citizens emptying from
    their necropolitic cities to
    make room for new occupants
    the unliving embodiment
    of consumerism with the
    emphasis on consume

    and they did

    The meek lost
    their inheritance
    now sole property
    (soul property)
    of the dead
    END
