“Class, turn your textbooks to page forty-three!”
A forceful door knock is heard suddenly.
Mr. Math fatefully decided to check;
In seconds, we hear a crunch of the neck.

Returning back pale and decaying,
In come three zombies staggering and swaying.
We jump out of our desks and rush to our feet,
Coming towards us, they were ready to eat!

I threw my textbook at his brainless head,
Then grabbed my friend to escape the walking dead.
We ran downstairs to the chemistry room,
Locking the door with a table and a broom.

The open ingredients compelled us to conspire;
We made concoctions that cause explosion and fire.
Hauling the beakers in a recycling bin,
We yelled, “Let the zombie apocalypse begin!”

They vehemently banged and moaned at the door.
I aimed the explosive and counted to four.
Darting to the gym, I took a pack of matches.
A surviving zombie gave my friend a few scratches.

Within minutes, her skin started to rot;
She turned against me and I felt guilty in thought.
A new crowd of zombies was by her side.
I ran into the locker room for a better place to hide.

In the sports closet, I found just what I was looking for:
Archery equipment, gasoline, and golf carts galore.
I locked the exit doors, smothering fuel around the school;
I dropped the lit matches, driving off and feeling cruel.

After an arduous battle against the zombies,
I came out victorious and was able to appease!

 2012 Winner

Roses are red.
Dead flesh is green.
When the dead start to rise,
You’re on my team.

Running fast and far
Just trying to survive
Hurry up and get in
Because I’m starting to drive!

To Costco we go,
To stock up supplies
We have cars and vaccines
Good thing Costco provides

Quick stock up on food
Grab all the guns
Propane tanks and torches
And hope for good fortune.

Hurry, lock the doors!
They are coming in fast.
Grab, lock, and load,
And get ready to blast!

As we open the doors,
A breeze lingers through.
Zombies! They’re on the horizon!
Now let’s end this snafu!

The apocalypse begins,
And flesh starts to fly!
The battle is raging,
And the dead start to die!

The smell of rotten flesh,
And flame throwers ablaze.
We’re stronger than them,
And slowly end this craze!

Quick! Where’s the vaccine?
A zombie injected his poison!
My fever is increasing,
And my world begins to darken.

Brains, flesh, and heart beats,
Take over all my senses.
Fight it, now, fight it!
Control this unruly nonsense!

Weaker and weaker, my body collapses.
A moment me and then a monster,
ready to turn on a friend.
And yet there are more sharp punctures…

Wait, I’m back to a clear mind,
And the cannibal urges dissipate!
My eyes gradually open,
And a new world awaits…

Roses are red.
Our flesh is still white.
We fought long and hard
To be the victors tonight!
