Tombstone Riddles For Kids
If you ever happen to see one of these etched
With your name, birth year and a future date

Just hope you don’t see a zombie’s arm
Coming out from under a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
What Am I?
I have writing on me but I’m not a newspaper

I can be found in a graveyard but I’m not a bunch of flowers
