Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Well it has happened once again

behaved as I want and you found fault

women and men all a threat to you

rarely is joy in ample supply

make any choice for me an assault

History repeats, it’s deja vu

(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
