Bury the lead

Day 30 (the END): For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Bury the (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Some possible titles include: “Bury the Hatchet,” “Bury the Body,” “Bury the Past,” “Bury the Hate,” and “Bury the Acorns.”

I really just had to end this month with a zombie poem. Because zombies.

Bury the lead


This small, one would say idyllic, town

Features lovely hills and a great flowing river.

Until last week, the population of this fine place

Was a bustling 4,500, not counting tourists

Who find the town exceptional for its picturesque setting

And its older American architecture and art.

If any tourists could be found there today

Perhaps they would say it’s truly the perfect vacation spot.

Except, of course, for all of those zombies.
