Bub, the zombie, from George Romero's iconic movie
"Day of the Dead" (1985)
Credit to the actor, Sherman Howard
Music soothes the savage beast
The living kind, you hope, at least
But in this case, you’ll find instead
Of beating heart, the living dead!
My good friend Bub, was once a man
Who breathed the air and walked the land
But once a zombie scourge appeared
He met a fate that many feared
A bite, a gnaw, infected blood
And over, Bub fell with a thud
But soon he was revitalized
I’m sure folks watching were surprised!
Unfortunately, Bub was changed
Behaving as if quite deranged
Like groaning, walking reeeally slow
His appetite for flesh did grow
When wandering, the army got him
You’d think as zombie, they’d have shot him
They took him deep in their compound
They studied him, and lo they found
That Bub, though still a cannibal
Proved to be quite loveable!
Thrilled by music of Beethoven
Listened as in mouth he’s shovin’
Buckets of some bloody meat
A doctor gave him as a treat!
What exactly am I saying?
It’s all from film you should be playing!
George Romero’s trilogy
That ends with goriest of the three
Day of the Dead, the best by far
And Bub is totally the star!
So if I’ve piqued your interest
Your gorge reflex put to the test
Get hands on movie, gather friends
(I will not spoil how this one ends)
You must like horror, but that’s a given
Okay with blood? Well, just a smidgen
If start to finish you endure
You’ll be a zombie connoisseur
And much like me, you won’t forget
Sweet Bub, the grossest hero yet!
