These are special requests poems, someone sent me the bumper sticker idea.

ONE

Jesus, you have everything some girls

Love to see in another human

You are determined, smart, handsome, kind

But you cannot be trusted with love

Everyone flocks to you, everyone

Else doesn’t know your truth, everyone

Thinks, that humor, that knowledge is all

You’re made up of but I know you’re

An untruth, under that guise you’re an

Asshole, a sham of a gentleman.

TWO

Jesus yes! to casual sex, he

Loves my breasts, my ass, my hips, my face

You do too – but not casually

But you are too serious for me

Everyone has opinions, no one

Else matters, who cares what anyone

Thinks, you want long term commitment and

You’re ready for forever, but I’m

An explorer, curious to learn

Asshole from saint with no strings attached

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 each word 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
  • May or may not be rhymed
  • 9 syllable lines
  • Number of lines depends on number of words on the bumper sticker
