Aim for the head; a Zombie Poem

They stumble along
Aimless in direction
They plague the planet
Covered with infection

They hunt for living
Survivors who have fled
Then feast on their flesh
So they become undead

Their populous grows
With every dead soul
The infection grows
Beyond human control

They cannot be stopped
By any normal means
They keep on going
Relentless like machines

Only one weakness
You must aim for the head
Destroying the brain
Is all that makes them dead

I needed a zombie poem for a school assignment and since I couldn't find any I made one. It's meant to be lighthearted and any fan of Zombies in movies, games, or books should enjoy reading this.

I am writing a collection zombie apocalypse story, and there are quotes at the beginnig of each one. I was wondering if you'd give me permission to use this? It'd be great if I could.

It was a farrago, (presenting multiple different types of pieces of literature with a unifying theme) and I chose zombies as my topic, I couldn't find a good poem about them so I wrote one myself
