Poet's Corner

I am the zombie blackbelt

I am a black belt

I leave blood wherever i go

its not for the right reasons

its for reasons you don’t know.

I leave behind a trail of destruction and gore

guts and entrails and broken bones

people treat me with disdain

so I eat up their brains

and leave their bodies behind me

or in their own homes.

Sticks and stones never hurt me

only removing my head

this is the glory i am blessed with

the glory of being half dead.

but you cant take me down

cause I dont feel pain

I am a zombie black belt so run when you see me

if you dont run I will overcome

you with a flying sidekick to your head

break your arm off

and use it to beat off your friends

and that will be the end of the story for you

cause you never get up

and i will drink your liquid brains from a cup.

About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
