I’d Rather Be Here Now

____________________________________________________________________________________________

I’d fallen into the trap before

Rather not do it again for sure

Be in the moment and nowhere else

Here, never guessing what is to come

Now, never stressing what’s already done

(A Bumper Sticker Poem)

Bumper Sticker Poems – a form I created, inspired by cento and golden shovel poetry, with the following guidelines:

  • Using a bumper sticker as inspiration use the words in the bumper sticker as the first word in each line of the poem
  • The theme of the poem may or may not have anything to do with the message of the sticker
  • Title should be the words of the bumper sticker
  • Should be rhymed
  • 9 syllable lines
  • Number of lines depends on number of words on the bumper sticker
