A to Z: “Zombie”

Welcome to my 2017 A to Z Challenge – poetry inspired by music. In most cases, my selected song triggers a memory or deeper meaning that I will expose in original poetry.

Either way, join me on my musical/poetic journey through A to Z — you may find a “new to you” song that you enjoy!
