Times Have Changed

Times Have Changed

If I’m still here
in the final years
of this drawn-out zombie apocalypse,
will my brain (now a valuable possession)
still be consumed by thoughts of you?

Before the outbreak,
whenever I heard
the song that Adele wrote
about her second divorce,
my mind would wander–
and I’d wonder
what had become of you.

Now, in this era of exile,
“the one that got away”
has acquired newfound meaning.
To escape is to survive.

In these bleak days,
I hope you’ve found a reason
to stay alive.

Truth be told:
I’d rather see your rotting corpse
than meet your undead body.
But even still,
I bet you’d be a pretty zombie.
