There Were Peace-Loving Zombies

pledged of $6,000 goal

20 days to go

haven't been undead for long

still getting used to it

so please forgive my clumsy typing

let me introduce myself:

an "office zombie" rather than

the marauding variety

member of the Zombie-Living Alliance (ZLA)

the  peaceful arm of the undead rights movement

which compiled this book of the best

stories on attitudes towards zombies—

a means for the world, living and undead,

covering all gender identities, racial and class backgrounds

to discuss relations and hopefully bring

a peaceful end to the present conflict

together we can produce a better world

than the living alone are able to muster

each of the 13 short pieces illuminates

a different aspect of The Situation

the Undead Liberation Front is growing stronger

as more and more are bitten

while the living become increasingly militant

please support this project to raise funds

and goodwill for continuing efforts towards

restorative justice and peace in our time
