Bumper Sticker Truth: A Poem by Bishop Trimble

I made a vow to myself
No bumper stickers
No advertising
Politics of peace
Shorthand messages
Of love
Symbols of sorts
Keep your eye on
The road
Not the bumper
In front of you.
My other car is this
Or that
My child is a genius
Or a soldier
Love America or leave it
Retired and rolling
Today I considered
Changing my vow
Bumper sticker truth
Pause to ponder
The message was clear
“Human Kind”
Be both…
