Blog Like It's the End of the World

Zombies are popular. So's blogging. This guy decided to combine them. Cool.

Braaaainnnnzzz.

So the meteor struck and now everyone's dying
But this is no time for fussing and crying
There are zombies all over from coast to coast
And I've got to tell everyone in my next post

Even though I can hear noise at the door
And something is trying to claw through the floor
My voice is important, I know that for sure,
And for now, my mom's basement seems secure

You've got to
Blog like it's the end of the world
While we've still got the phone lines and power
Blog like it's the end of the world
Though our readership drops by the hour
Earth is in danger so I'll answer the call
With a scathing retort posted at TownHall
You've got to
Blog like it's the end of the world
Just in case that's what it turns out to
Be.

No matter how bloodthirsty zombies become,
They can't withstand Atrios or Kevin Drum
Of course they want brains, they don't have one iota,
Of what God gave Glenn Greenwald or David Sirota

We can bar the doors or light bonfires,
But check Free Republic and Crooks and Liars
'Cause with undead carnivores roaming at large,
We want John Derbyshire leading the charge.

You've got to
Blog like it's the end of the world
For the citizens need all the facts
At the corporate media the gauntlet is hurled,
Likewise, at the zombies, this axe
Our civilization is blowing to bits,
But today my LJ's had four thousand hits...
You've got to
Blog like it's the end of the world
Just in case that's what it turns out --

There's a troll in the comments who's giving me stress
Whining how we're defeated and beaten
I'll just forward the zombies his IP address
And eventually he'll be eaten
There's an interesting stench coming in through the vents
Or it could be this sandwich from Tuesday
There've been so many noteworthy current events
That we're lucky today's a slow news day

I have no idea 'bout the fate of men
HaloScan and Gravatar are hosed again
Daily Kos is down and so's Powerline,
But that's normal so for all I know everything's fine
I can hear from upstairs that the screaming has stopped
And that face peeking through doesn't look Photoshopped
As they burst through the door, I know that I'm done
Just give me a minute for spell-check to run

You've got to
Blog like it's the end of the world
All is chaos, unrest and disorder,
Blog like it's the end of the world
And the comments get shorter and shorter
Now normally I'm not someone who complains
But I'm getting the munchies, and what I want's brains
You've got to
Blog like it's the end of the world
'Cause it is.
