542 : The Zombie Army

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were phantom, agile and flaccid.

The Zombie Army

The convulsive genital sneeze
Propels the phantoms of mankind,
Only semi human but still determined;
Relentless, agile and blind.

Billions storm the battlements
But only one will have succeeded.
The rest are just left to die;
Superfluous and unneeded.

The commander of the forces
Stops once his goal’s obtained,
And slips into a peaceful sleep
Contented, flaccid and, well, drained.

  1. Never thought of semen being a zombie army but the way you have written it's OK. I try to think of them as marines perhaps struggling against the tide.

  2. Nice play on sementics. (Sorry, I couldn't resist).

  3. Well drained??? Too much fine detail!

    1. I put a couple of commas in. Happy now?
