Zombie Poetry: Rules, Regulations, and Poetry?

A little Zombie Prom poetry to inspire as we prepare for the next week and a half of rehearsals and a show next Friday and Saturday.

This is an Oddquain, the name is as odd as any I have come across. An oddquain is a 5 line poem, unrhyming lines, but with a meter of 1-3-5-7-1. There are several style of oddquains that use additional lines and or different patterns. Below is what is called a Butterfly Oddquain that uses the meter pattern of 1-3-5-7-1-7-5-3-1, it is also called a Mirrored Oddquain. Something about rules and respect that sometimes people forget (and no spoilers).

To Follow the Rules

you play by
the regulations
situated by Strict law.
something asked for, not always
repaid in kind though
sometimes is
