On February 7th, my full collection of satire poetry, Not Your Average Sonnet, will be available for $9.97 on Amazon. So, each day leading up to its sweet sweet release, I’ve decided to share a poem from the collection! It’s gonna be a really great time. So much better than your brother-in-laws birthday dinner. Wayyyy better than Karaoke night. Possibly even better than sex. Possibly.
Oh and if you would like a signed copy of the book, all you have to do is visit my Patreon site and sign up to become a $10 patron. Or you can buy it on Amazon and wait til you randomly come across me in public and throw a pen at me from across the room, but I wouldn’t suggest that.
Anyways, here’s a sneak peak into the book. This one is called “Bumper Stickers.”
Rush hour: sticker to sticker traffic
consumes lanes. Political expression
combined with road rage equates to tragic
delays. “My child’s student of the month”
displays proliferate, and no one cares.
Adhesive celebrations of small feats
as low as 13.1 brashly shared
to those who truly do not give a shit.
August alumni tout their zealous pledge
so when they cut you off, at least you’ll know
they went to Stanford, too, before they speed
away. Protective parents make it known
“baby on board.” You were gonna T-bone
them but there a child lies so you think again.
