The Best Things in Life Aren’t Things
The time has arrived to celebrate
Best time of the year, some disagree
Things like cold, snow and short days dissuade
In fact I will not live without it
Life without winter cannot be great
Aren’t these humid summer months crappy?
Things are best with snowflakes, I’m afraid.
(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
