Do You Like to Sing?

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Do you have trouble holding it in?

You sing on the treadmill and trails?

Like, loudly without caring who hears?

To fret not about notes you can’t nail?

Sing simply everywhere you’ve been?

(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
