There Coming To Get You Barbara

There Coming To Get you Barbara

out for a ride to drop off flowers for their mother
 just for Barbara & her brother
 pulled up to the cemetery & looked around
 a chill in the air got there late for day light savings time

 Suddenly a figure crawls out at the scene
 shadows block the image in their mind
 demonic creatures had lurched through the portals of space
 next came a tug from her brother shirt then a fight ensued

 a myriad chase was underway cracking one zombie in the head
 next the brother gets knocked over the head
 Barbara frantic now runs to the nearby car
 going too fast she puts on the gas

 slamming into a tree
 next she gets out of the car & runs to a nearby vacant house
 it was the invasion of the zombie people
 no stained glass moment or church steeple

 She vaguely remembers her brother saying, "There coming to get you Barbara...
 the creatures fight to get inside her dwelling she is surrounded
 it's the night of the living dead

 Some crazy things going on inside her head
 closer they come yet she stands guarded by a humble man
 sullen creatures of the night with viscous fangs that bite
 blood dripping off the side all need to run away & hide

 There is no escape now...
