The Walking Corpse

Standard

This is the story
Of the walking corpse
Inhibit not
This exhibit moves
It eats
Its sleeps like you
Talking
No difference there
But see it breathe
There is no life
No love no care
No would be dare
No spirit animates
The ache of weight
To bear
Mechanical it functions
Just like you
But where oh where
Was there and ever is
A who?
