You could hear the whip crack on one Zombie's back

As they were marching with shovel and spade,

Then they dug up the dead from each cold bed,

Those un-holy legions of The Zombie Brigade.


On this Hallows-Eve the living grieve

For they discovered misdeeds, profound,

And the Day of the Dead will forever be shed

If NO bodies are left in the ground.


"Where did they go?" asked a tormented soul,

"And what could they want with them?"

"Who knows," said the Ghost who offered a toast

To the loss of each body and fragmented limb.


Oh woo to the dead, without body and head,

Too great a price their spirits have paid.

 This Hollows Eve holds revenge up it's sleeve

So we must attack The Zombie Brigade!


An eye for an eye was the battle cry

As the Ghosts and Goblins attacked.

Banshees wailed and the Zombies failed

To slow the advance of the determined pack.


We will have what is ours, buried under flowers,

And the leader of Zombies has a price to be paid.

He will join us below, his body and soul,

For we will defeated his Zombie Brigade.


And with one last charge, overwhelmingly large,

The Zombie Brigade was defeated that night.

 Then they captured that creature, that Zombie leader,

And buried him alive, which only seemed right.
