Have you ever wondered…?

Have you ever wondered why people die…?
Why their bodies are no longer used,
and their souls seem to fly.

Have you ever wondered where someone’s soul goes…?
If heaven and hell were real,
or if there was something else to know.

Have you ever wondered if zombies were real…?
Their bodies rotted corpse shells,
and their hunger never yields.

But have you ever wondered if zombies could be nice…?
Not just evil, blood-craving monsters,
but kind, and only ate rice.

And have you ever wondered what would happen to you…?
If you were a zombie,
or if your soul flew.

But all these wonderings have no end.
So eat your dinner,
and don’t speak of this again.
