Late Residents of the Cemetery (or, Zonnet)

The barricades have been thrown up; a mess
of timber and barbed wire are our defense.
We have our bullets, sandbags brace the fence,
and here they converge on our address.
Shambling corpses, mindless drones
with melting skin and syphilitic
faces exposing their bones;
gaping mouths of acidic
saliva and rotten teeth
leak moans as they lurch forward,
raising decayed arms toward
us. Do I smell their breath?
We are outnumbered;
is this the end?
