55 - Dead Wrong

Lumbering along
as if there were no connection
between muscles and brain
he stared with unfocused eyes.
Teeth gleaming blood red
and dripping with the pink of gray matter. 
His pallor betrayed him
as he trudged forward
in a jerky motion
toward his prey
who exclaimed,
"Dude. Really?
The costume is great,
but it's Easter."

This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55
hosted by Mr. Knowitall.
For more 55's pay him a visit -
Mr. Knowitall.

Clothes make the man, they say, or the zombie, in this case. As long as he brings me chocolate bunnies, i couldn't care less. Monstrously neat 55, MM.

I love your punch lines, MM. You carry us along, unsuspecting, then WHAM!

There was that demon in Buffy who dressed as a bunny for Hallowe'en because she thought they were scary.....

Nice 55. Happy whatever you want to celebrate this weekend. Here's my 55

You and your pictures! Damn but I have to look away like a schoolgirl. Happy Easter to you!

Well there are some very scary Bunnies out there- like the flying kind from SAT.Night Live, or some such realm- thanks.

the walking man said...

That was funny as anything I have read this morning. Great one!

Julie Ferguson said...

Good one....don't mess with the bunny. Happy Easter!

He looks like my feels after consuming pounds of chocolate.

Maude Lynn said...

he refuses to conform, I like that!

I got so much shit for being zombie santa at santacon last year. The other boring santa's were creeped out by my zombie eyes and pale skin.
