Denise Cloyd

Denise was a student in pre-apocalyptic days,
She trained as a surgeon but her choice then sways
To psychiatry as she suffered from panic attacks,
But in The Walking Dead, she has to go back.

After the Wolves attack, Rosita brings in her first patient,
Holly is bleeding out and on Denise, she  is dependent.
Try as she might, Denise cannot revive
Holly and unfortunately she doesn't survive.

Tara discovers Denise sulking, sat on the floor,
She tells Tara she doesn't want to do this anymore.
Denise says that the patient she's treating is likely to die,
"Being afraid is a fear you have to overcome," Tara replies.

Denise researches through her medical collection,
She finds a way to stabilize her patient's infection.
She finds Tara and tells her she's found what's amiss,
And much to Tara's surprise, she gives her a kiss.
Denise and Tara
Morgan asks Denise to dispense him antibiotics,
She questions him, and Morgan tells her his tactics.
He has imprisoned Owen, a Wolf in a makeshift cell,
Who has an infected wound, it's not healing well.

Whilst visiting the Wolf and dressing his cut,
A fight breaks out between Morgan and Carol,  but
both end up unconscious on the cell room floor,
The Wolf is free, he isn't a prisoner, not any more.

Tara, Rosita and Eugene barge in,  they are ready to fight,
Owen holds the knife up against Denise's throat so tight, 
They lower their guns and slide them across the floor,
And Owen and Denise walk out of the door. 

Outside the street is full of walkers, they wait and then, 
they run to safety, but Denise is attacked and Owen defends
her, he gets bitten on the arm by a walker and it looks grim,
She tells him to come with her, so she can amputate the limb.

They shelter in a house and Denise ties a belt around his bitten arm,
They need to get to the infirmary, so he can come to no more harm.
Owen leads them both out, pushing through the walkers with zest,
but Carol sees them from a balcony and shoots Owen in the chest.

Owen is wounded and falls to the ground, he is eaten alive.
Denise makes it to the infirmary with those who have survived.
She sees Rick and Michonne with Carl who has a bloody eye,
Working methodically, she saves Carl, he's not gonna die.  

Denise asks Daryl and Rosita for help with a plan, 
A pharmacy in the area may have drugs,  which they can
bring back to Alexandria and use for the families,
Daryl and Rosita aren't sure but then they they agree. 

They reach the pharmacy and medical supplies are saved,
Denise picks up a key chain, the name Dennis is engraved.
Daryl guesses that Dennis was her brother,  she further explains,
That he was her twin, he was brave, but only she remains. 

Denise spots a car, it has a walker and a blue cooler bag inside,
She opens the door, reaches in, the walker falls from the car, it's suicide.
The walker is killed, she claims a single can of orange drink,
Daryl and Rosita chastise her, why did she do that? Why didn't she think?

Denise explains that she was trying to conquer her fears and claims
that Daryl and Rosita are also capable of doing the same.
When suddenly she is struck in her right eye by a crossbow bolt,
She carries on talking, but then collapses with a jolt. 

Her killer, Dwight, emerges from the trees next to the tracks,
A fight ensues, which results in the Saviors retreating back.
Denise's body is taken back to the Safe-Zone, all are upset, 
Dwight later reveals her death was an accident, Daryl was the target. 
Denise is shot through the right eye with a crossbow bolt.

The Walking Dead: S1 Ep1 – Days Gone By

Rick in his hospital bed.
Rick Grimes  arises from his hospital bed,
The flowers brought to him by Shane, are dead. 
He walks out of the room, there's blood on the floor,
"Don't Open, Dead Inside," is sprayed on a door.
There's fingers clawing between a slight crack,
What's going on? What's that? Rick's taken aback.
He stumbles out into the daylight and sees,
The bodies of people, do they have a disease?

He gets on a bike and rides back to his home,
But it's empty, his wife and his son have flown. 
He meets up with Morgan, who tells him all,
About the demise of the world and its fall.
They go to the police station to find some guns,
Their strategy for killing zombies has just begun,
He hands Morgan a radio, to keep in touch,
Rick wants to find his wife and son he loves so much.

Rick is going to Atlanta, he's driving of course,
He runs out of petrol, so rides a tame horse.
On reaching Atlanta there's a lot of undead,
The horse spooks, Rick falls, he has to use his head.
Iconic scene from The Walking Dead
As the walkers devour the horse of its flesh and its bones,
Rick spies a tank, he can hear the walkers and their moans,
They're getting closer and Rick holds the gun to his head,
Maybe in this world, he'd be better off dead.

He suddenly spies a hatch underneath the tank,
And makes his way quickly, he has the Lord to thank.
He climbs in the tank, an undead soldier is inside,
Rick shoots him,  there was nowhere to hide. 

As Rick decides what on earth he should do,
A voice crackles through the radio, a young dude,
"Hey you, dumbass. Yeah, you in the tank, you cosy in there?"
It's the voice of salvation, something quite rare.
