Five Hungry Zombies

It's crazy at my house right now with a trip coming up, a new puppy coming soon, and the HORRORS of fifth grade homework! But I couldn't miss Susanna Hill's Halllweensie Contest!

The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words shivercauldron, and howl.  Your story can be scary, funny, or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words (you can go under, but not over!) 

Here's my entry. I wish everyone a Happy and Safe Halloween. May you get every candy you want *after* the kids go to bed! Mwa Ha Ha!

Five Hungry Zombies

By Lauri Meyers

Five hungry zombies rotting on a street.
The first one wailed, “Need something to eat!”
The second one groaned, “Cauldron over there.”
The third one screamed, “Smell children in air!”
The fourth one moaned, “Eat some brains.”
The fifth one howled, “Finish the remains.”
Then squish moved their feet. Kids shivered with fright.
And five hungry zombies stumbled for a bite.


  1. This was fun to read Lauri. :) And a rhyme to boot! Well done!

  2. Hahaha. Very cute and clever. Good luck in the contest.

  3. Fun! I always enjoy your Halloweensie entry! 😁

  4. Well done -- I can imagine this as a skipping rhyme, or maybe as a lolly scramble rhyme, given as it's Halloween.

  5. Lauri, I'm not into zombies, but this is GREAT! :D Good Luck!

  6. Ew! Super gross and creepy! Nice work, Lauri! :) Thanks for joining in the Halloweensie fun!

  7. Zombie fun. Love it, as long as they're not biting me.

  8. Great Halloweensie entry, Lauri. But oh dear...5 hungry zombies! I'm outta here. ;)

  9. I love it so much I rapped it! HaHa

    1. I'm lucky to hear you do all this rapping you cute kiddo you:)
