I've written the first few poems for my zombie war poetry idea. They're from the perspective of a girl who fled the zombies into an old air raid shelter with her mum, who turned out to be infected and subsequently died, reanimated and attacked her. She successfully defended herself against her zombie mum, but couldn't dispose of the body because doing so would have meant going outside where all the other zombies were.
Obviously, this girl goes mental, retreating into a childlike second personality, and chalked poems on the wall that are all a bit crazy. Here is an example:

mummy mummy go away
come again another day
go, and take your friend away
tell them I don't want to play
While blood still runs within my veins
tell them they must wait.
