Haiku is harder to write than one would think, but here's an entire book of them that tell the story of a man's death and reanimation into a zombie, and his neverending quest for braaaaaains. A lot of the haiku contained herein move the story along, but there are a number of gems, too:

Brains brains brains brains brains
Brains brains brains brains brains brains brains
Brains brains brains brains brains.

A man starts yelling
'When there's no more room in Hell...'
But then we eat him.

The crying baby
Reminds me of fast food meals
With a prize inside.

Blood is really warm.
It's like drinking hot chocolate
But with more screaming.

Zombie Poet's haiku journal is also peppered with bloodstains, stray hair, and Polaroid photos of his zombie friends. It's a fun, quick little nasty read.
