Here are some excerpts:
Fire and Ice and Zombies
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor zombies.
For zombies perish not once but twice,
I think I know enough about survival
To say that for destruction
Fighting in a zombie apocalypse
Is pretty great
And would suffice.
This is Robert Frost, possibly America's greatest poet. He also was a wife-beater, so I have no qualms about making some creative changes to his poetry.
ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth
Then took the other as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
And there were fewer zombies lurking there
Other than that, time had worn them really about the same.
(You get the general idea.)
