(to the tune of "People")

Rotting, undead people
Are the hungriest people one can meet,
Expression, lacking all expression

As their stiff and lumbering stride
Hide all feelings inside,
Leaving blank expressions
On Haitians.

“Zombies” are what we call these people,
They’re the hungriest people
One can meet.
The right zombie,
That one “Mr. Right” zombie
Bites deeply into your brain
What once was whole,
Now is twain.
No more affect for you
You’re expressionless, too
You’re a zombie –
Stupid, stinking zombie
You’re the silliest zombie
One can meet!

When Possession
Becomes a world obsession
Zombie Apocalypse comes
Once we were good,
Now we’re bums.
And the virus will spread
Till the whole world’s undead,
Filled with zombies –
Suppurating zombies
Are the peskiest zombies
One can meet!
