Ozzy

Ozzy
Ozzy is a leader of a group called The Highwaymen,
They strike a deal with the Kingdom, to protect the roads when,
A herd of walkers attacks Tara and people from Hilltop,
The Highwaymen do good on their deal, and the walkers they stop.

Ozzy and his group patrol the Kingdom outskirts and they find,
People captured by the Whisperers, they have the presence of mind,
To run inside and start attacking, giving the captives a chance to fight,
But then Alpha arrives with more of her group and try as they might,

They cannot fight them off, they punch and lunge and they strike,
But later, Ozzy, his Highwaymen, Tara, Enid and others, their heads are found on a pike.

Otis

Otis
Otis was employed by Hershel as a ranch hand,
He had a wife, Patricia, they lived on the farmland, 
Otis played the guitar and loved to hunt for deer,
But this resulted in an accident involving Carl, I fear. 

Whilst Otis was in the woods he saw a buck and took aim,
The bullet passed through the deer, and then Carl it did maim,
They take Carl to Hershel’s farm, they have tears in their eyes,
And Otis and Shane go to a school to scavenge for supplies. 

When they reach the school, there are a lot of undead,
They create a diversion, so they can get the meds,
Once inside the supply trailer, they collect lots of stuff,
The walkers are now swarming, it’s looking very tough. 

They manage to escape to the school’s abandoned gym,
Shane busts through a window, Otis isn’t that slim,
He finds a larger window and joins Shane on the ground,
They run for their lives, there are lots of walkers around. 

They both are tired and Shane falters, he admits defeat,
He tells Otis to go without him, he refuses and helps Shane to his feet, 
The horde is still pursing them, they can’t outrun them anymore,
So, Shane shoots Otis in the leg and he falls to the floor.

Shane makes his escape with the supplies that they need,
Whilst Otis is eaten by walkers, Shane leaves him to bleed.

THE WALKING DEAD: S1 EP 4 – VATOS

Daryl is angry to see his brother’s severed hand, 
He threatens T-Dog with his crossbow and
Rick points his revolver at Darryl, he’ll fire for sure,
Darryl stands down, there’s a trail of blood on the floor.

To retrieve the bag filled with guns, Glenn has a plan, 
But two men arrive in a car and they kidnap this man,
Rick, Daryl and T-Dog take a young Latino hostage and he tells,
He’s from a group called The Vatos, they want the guns as well. 
The Latino named Miguel, tells them where the group is,
They go there and find their leader, Guillermo, and his 
group of survivors, he won’t trade Glenn, Rick asks with all his might,
Guillermo orders them to bring the guns or be ready for a fight! 

After discussing what to do, the three men go back to broker a deal,
They offer half the guns in exchange for Glenn, but Guillermo doesn’t feel
This is what he wants, everyone is jittery, there is tension in the air, 
When a grandmother appears, she scolds her grandson and gives everyone a glare. 

The Veto’s are protecting a retirement home, the old and the frail, 
Rick sees they are good people, so he hands over the guns to ensure they don’t fail.
Back at the camp, the group are having a celebration fish fry
When nobody hears the screams of Ed as he is bitten and dies.
Next Amy is exiting Dale’s RV and is bitten by a walker on her arm,
Andrea is upset, she should have protected her sister from harm. 

The campsite is overrun with walkers, some survivors are eaten,
The rest of the campers take cover behind Shane and Dale, they won’t be beaten. 
With limited ammunition they fire at the walkers and pray to the Lord,
When Rick and the others return and shoot down the horde. 

In the arms of Andrea, Amy takes her last breath and dies,
And Andrea is inconsolable, she breaks down and cries… 

THE WALKING DEAD: S1 EP 3 – TELL IT TO THE FROGS

Merle Dixon is still handcuffed and is shouting in fear, 
He screams to God to help him,  the walkers are near.
They hear him screaming and bang on the locked door,
Merle gains his composure, he's not asking God anymore. 
Merle handcuffed on roof of store
He sees a handsaw knocked down in their rush to leave,
He reaches over to grab it, he can get it he believes.
The group arrive at the camp and Rick sees everyone:
Shane, his partner,  Lori, his wife  and Carl, his son. 

Rick tells Lori that he knew she and Carl were not dead, 
"The family albums had been taken from our home," he said. 
Rick meets Daryl, and tells him about Merle's plight, 
It's his brother they left there, Daryl  is angry and wants to fight. 
Rick agrees to go to Atlanta with Daryl and look everywhere,
And also Glenn and T-Dog, who feels guilty he left Merle there.
While they're gone, Lori speaks to Shane about their affair,
She tells him to stay away from her, he says it's not fair. 

The woman in the group are in the quarry getting things clean,
When Carol's husband, Ed, shouts at her, Andrea intervenes. 
Ed slaps Carol and Shane who is angry, beats up Ed,
Shane says if he sees him abuse anyone again, he's dead.  
Back in Atlanta, the four men arrive at the store,
They make they way up to the rooftop once more.
Darryl runs onto the roof, he starts yelling and crying and,

THE WALKING DEAD: S1 EP 2 – GUTS

Lori is in the woods, berries and plants need to be found,
The survivor camp is hungry, a noise makes her turn round.
Afraid that it's a walker, she stifles a shout,
But it's Shane who appears and they start to make out. 
The voice on the radio tells Rick he can get out,
The walkers are feasting on the horse, he shouts,
Rick grabs his weapon and a grenade by his feet,
He opens the hatch and runs down the street. 

He runs into a young man, who is called Glenn,
They make their way to his hideaway den. 
When they reach it, a gun is pointed at Rick's head,
"You have compromised the group," a female has said.
The woman is called Andrea and she likes to be bad ass,
They hear shots from the rooftop, they run up real fast. 
Merle Dixon is sniping walkers and behaving quite mad,
Morales tries to stop him, Merle beats him up bad. 
Rick takes command of the group and has to act tough,
He decides the best plan is to use his handcuffs.
Merle is left coupled to a pipe on the roof space,
The group hatch a plan to escape, it's not safe. 

They slaughter a walker and drain his blood and guts,
Rick and Glenn are covered, this has to work, no ifs or buts. 
They make their way to a nearby construction site,
The horde ignores them, the plan is working, hold tight.

But then to their horror, a sudden rainstorm begins,
The guts are washing off, the walkers are closing in.
Rick manages to run to the site and get in a truck, 
Glenn hotwires a sports car, that was a piece of good luck. 

Glenn sounds the horn and gives a loud whoop, 
And Rick drives the truck to get to the group.
T-Dog is guarding Merle, Jacqui tells him to flee,
But in his haste to unlock the handcuffs he loses the key. 
To ensure Merle is safe, T-Dog locks the door,
And they run to the truck to escape the gore.
Just outside the city limits, Glenn speeds in his car,
They're headed to their safe zone, it's not that far.
