Haunted House Design Challenge - Wayward Words HDH048

This week at haunted design house the challenge is to create something using text/words as the main focus.  So I was wondering what dark poetry could I use then my eye fell on the book my brother got me which was Pride and Prejudice with Zombies.  Yes you heard it right, somebody has re-written or added to pride and prejudice and added zombies.  My brother knows I love zombie and I love pride and prejudice (the book and the bbc version with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth).  Anyways I have never read it although I thought it was quite funny for the challenge I skim read it and it was going on about zombies eating cauliflowers and Elizabeth Bennet fighting ninjas and I thought na not for me.  I did though read the first paragraph which I thought was quite funny which is "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains".  So this is the text I am using for my entry this week.

I don't know if you can make out my writing as it is a bit crazy but I tested it on my hubby (who didn't think the book was in the least bit funny, something about good literature hehe) and he could read it.  The text is supposed to be in a brain (pathetically drawn I know)  and the zombie is biting it (hmm hilarious, not really haha).  I drew the zombie and brain on rymans card and coloured it with promarkers and copics and used a copic pen to do the writing.  (I used to do this writing when I was younger and had a few people ask me to do them their names for their doors). 

Anyways here is a close up of the text:

The zombie is right - there is always a lack of brain in the world - so it's better to have two than only one.
I love the writing very much.
