Other People's Zombies



Robin Hood and Friar Tuck: Zombie Killers
A Canterbury Tale by Paul A Freeman



Good Robin Hood, while robbing in the wood
came upon the noble Friar Tuck. Good
fellow sayeth he, you're just the chappie
to help me rid the land of its unhappy
state of monsters and of beasts that although
dead still rise to prey upon the morrow.
For such a tale as this is rarely seen –
a Canterbury tale too long has been
missing from the library shelves and shops
the favoured tale of Robin and a box
of ill matched merry men, assorted foes
with or without a complement of toes
Why, I beg – nay, urge – you all to purchase
this splendid tale of zombies set in Sherwood
Paul Freeman's book, indeed, one of a kind
(and his couplets leave mine far behind)


Please note:
I bought my own copy and was not paid, remunerated or
otherwise cajoled to give a favourable review. I liked it
all on my own.
