Ten Z Commandments

based on TEN DUEL COMMANDMENTS from HAMILTON  by Lin-Manuel Miranda

By Susan Monk & assistant co-writer Pat Sponaugle
One, two, three, four
Five, six, seven, eight, nine…
It’s the Ten Z Commandments
It’s the Ten Z Commandments
Number one!
The challenge: live and don’t get bitten
Set up a safe encampment with a few trusted friends
Number two!
Grab a friend, trust your buddy
You’ll need a lieutenant when things gonna get bloody
Number three!
Fighting walkers: stand with your second back to back
Stab some walkers in the head…
You’ve got to go on the attack
This is good advice, ‘specially for new groups
Z’s silently die & no one shoots
Number four!
If someone gets bit, that’s alright
Time to amputate the limb, get the doctor on site
You tourniquet up high, treat the doc with civility
You have a fire burnin’ n cauterize with rapidity
If you can’t amputate, say goodbye
Pick a place to die where it’s high and dry

Number six!
Leave a note for your next of kin
Tell ‘em where you been. Pray that hell or heaven lets you in
Fence your home in
Ready for the moment of defense from opponents both undead and human
Number eight!
Their last chance to negotiate
Send in your leaders, see if they can trade for something great
Hello, anyone there?
Oh hello, sir
We’ve agreed that all new residents should be vetted?
But your man has to let the doc see all his wounds
That blood? We both know that’s not his, sir
Hang on, how many men might die when your man later turns & kills us?
Okay, so we’re doin’ this
Number nine!
Look Z’s in the eye, aim no higher
Summon all the courage you require
Then count
One two three four
Five six seven eight nine
Ten zombies!
