Poem 15 - zombie zebras

The further into this poetry month that I get the more ridiculous my poetry has become. I apologize. I am embarrassed. But I did promise that I'd write the poems each day. I can't always be creative! More than anything I think poetry month just gives you an idea of what I think about regularly...which might have been better left alone off the paper! Oh's too late now...

Zombie Zebras
(yes I only decided to write this poem because I liked the alliteration of the title)

Zombie zebras
can run!
and yet the still
hit trees
at full speed
cheetahs know no better
so they still feed
the stripes and spots
pulse together
the way their hearts
used to beat
and spread red
across the earth tones
of this abandoned safari
