Assassins & Zombies, Oh My!

He swings his sword around,
 Perhaps he sees himself
 as a samurai
 a ninja
 an assassin like Altair

He fights with fists and guns,
 Placing himself in a post-apocalyptic world
 fighting zombies
 people
 in a Fallout world
 
He thinks of nuclear physics,
 Prattling on about nuclear fusion
 two nuclei
 contact
 fusion — say what?

He slays creepy crawlies,
 Patiently he searches
 for the cockroach
 the spider
 to save me

He comes home to me,
 Peacefully we’ll watch TV
 tickles may ensue
 laughter
 subdued in my arms
