Flesh Pinata

strung up
out of reach.
fleshbags filled, delicacies.
stewing in putrid juices.
delight the undead; children.
Groans of hunger;excitement
within the ranks;
mangled limbs out-stretched
eager to be first to the flesh.

  1. Now that is an interesting way to look at a dead body. Very creative, and I felt that little tingle of horror while reading it. Great job! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Bravo! Great response to the prompt...and I adore that zombie photo, too. You're doing a lot of good things with creative writing prompts on this website... keep it up!
