Post Apocalypse 55

The long war had finally ended. 
Disease and violence 
had taken its toll 
through the entire apocalyptic event.
A new world of normalcy now prevailed. 
In a small recovering town, 
a bell jingled 
with the opening of a door 
as the bent shopkeeper slowly grunted, 
“Whut kin Ah git fur ya?” 
came the reply.


This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55
hosted by Mr. Knowitall
in  combination with Zombie Walk

hosted by Ghost Hunting Theories.
For more 55's pay G-man a visit -

Never open the door--or go down in the basement, or get out of the car and wander off into the dark woods.
As a sidenote, brains are higher in cholesterol than any other body part.Just sayin.
Happy Zombie Walk, MM.

G-Man said...

I guess this apocalypse bypassed the garden city of Detroit.

Daydreamer said...

Oh yuck~!

It's gonna happen one day, too!
Great, but yucky... 55 :)

Argent said...

A beautifully-crafted little gem!

Kikit said...

Julie Ferguson said...

Does it taste like chicken?

Two Gory Chicks said...

I love that brain! Amazing.

Come on over and check us out:

Leo Godin said...

Nobody uses 55 words like you do. Nicely done.

ellie said...

Those are some juicy brains!

Anonymous said...

Talk about a brain drain. :)

Bubba said...

You're a real brain, MM - that's because you are what you eat.

Maude Lynn said...

Hope he's got a shotgun!

Katy Bennett said...

That's one tasty looking dish.

Stranger said...

That was great and I love the picture. Looks delicious.

Little Gothic Horrors said...

Brilliant flash fiction! And that picture is actually the grossest I've seen on the walk so far, believe it or not!!

Pheromone Girl said...

The first rule of Zombieland: Cardio. When the zombie outbreak first hit, the first to go, for obvious reasons... were the fatties.

So, wanna work out?

PattiKen said...

Oh, yuck. That is disturbing on so many levels...

Cathy Feaster said...

I think Hannibal Lecter would love your 55-with a side of brains, of course!

Doctor FTSE said...

Powerful 55. Takes brains to write that well!

my day in a sentence said...

Great! :)

Following, mate! :)

Vanessa Victoria Kilmer said...

"Gimme," said the Scarecrow (who obviously is a zombie.)

hope said...

And so the month for Halloween begins with an appropriately creepy theme. :)

Ed & Jeanne said...

The zombies are already here... I've seen the politics in Washington...

Maxwell Mead Williams Robinson Barry said...

ready for Halloween?

neat ending phrase, enjoyed your 55.

Justine’s Halloween said...

I can't believe how grossed out I get every time I see a picture of a brain on a plate! The red liquid is what really pushes that photo over the edge.

Lydia said...

Brains on a platter: ish!
