Zombies



It's a place where the cries of the agonised
Are drowned in the perfect harmony of artificial beauty.
It's a bedlam of emotions, selfish beyond doubt,
Devoid of love, except love for money,
Devoid of hope, except hope for success,
Devoid of philanthropy, except when it's for self-benefaction.
It's a place where relations are measured in numbers.
It's a mirage of perfectness, where reality is smothered by the ever evolving art of pretension.
Because beneath the perfectly chiseled face of the human race,
Lies the grotesque contorted form of a zombie.

  2. Wow, that's incredibly insightful and a great take on the prompt.

    The only thing I would change (and apologies, I know you haven't asked and it's only a personal thought) is that I would change the word perfectness to perfection.

    Sarah: just the word I was looking for. Constructive criticism is always welcome! Thanks! :)

  4. Looks like we pretty much have the same opinion of the human race. Very creative take on a difficult prompt.
