Tragic, Killer Robot – Zombie Love

This week I was going to continue my poetic, time traveling adventure, reaching back into the archives of my blog and reinventing the fridge poems, but I was distracted by my friend Angie’s Twitter post:

Today I got my students writing sonnets about zombies and killer robots. #TeacherWin

Illustrated by the amazing Joie Brown! Friendship once again proves to be magic.!

I did do a fridge sonnet back in February 2011. I posted it here, in Happy Discounted Candy Day, but this one is way better. Enjoy.

Love Data Malfunction

I am a killer robot lost in love,
designed and programmed to destroy undead,
until a cowering corpse looked-up above.
Transfixed, I could not laser-beam her head.

I picked her up, careful not to crush her.
Her single eye was brighter than a gem.
When she bit me as I tried to brush her,
my sensors overloaded to the brim!

Oh, my zombie lover, fair and festering,
I can not smell you, for I have no nose!
I’ll corrupt commands I’m sequestering,
To save this killer robot’s zombie rose!

Command does not compute, does not compute.
Malfunction Self Destruct Mode, execute.
