Three monstrous limericks

(Besides participating in the 2013 Blogging A to Z April Challenge (see post below), I'm also participating in National Poetry Writing Month. In NaPoWriMo, I'm supposed to write a poem a day for the whole month. Here are the poems for the eighth day. They're short so I thought I should do three.)

The Thing Without A Brain

My brain and I once lived in Rome
but it wandered far from home
     It left an empty space
     a hollow behind my face
And now all I can do is moan


I bit old Aunt Elizabeth first
I thought she'd sate my thirst
     But she didn’t fill me up
     so my cousins I supped
And now they too are cursed


They wake from death craving brains
Brains and brains their only refrain
     They fumble and bumble
     They'll kill if you stumble
But the zombies would eat you in vain

Ha! Had a good little chuckle at the evil vampire rhymes. Yummy relatives!
