Pause

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Without or with expected applause… pause

In spite of or despite your faux pas… pause

Before breaking or following laws… pause

When considering what are and are not flaws… pause

When running towards or away from dangerous jaws…pause

Just because…pause

Without cause…pause

Humankind Be Both

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Humankind designed with minds entwined

be resigned inclined refined aligned

both kind and unkind never confined

(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
