Lord Byron Downloads A Zombie Movie by Christopher Barnes

When to their                    hughies on a fuddled gale,
Shall call my spirit,           dark Guinness-tinged, pugilistic,
When, pois’d                    he rip-tides thick speech,
Or, dark in mist                 marks the spot before an unfermented head.
Oh! May my shade’s        giddy-pluck veins drain
To mark the spot              into a jotted fragment, a pub-crawl swig alone.
No lenghthen’d scroll       if that with bed-readiness this liver has glued
My epitaph shall be          with lurk-remembered charms
If that                                only bugger-all shall lucidify
Oh! May no other             gaffes be misremembered.

Glossary of slang: Hughie – Vomits.
