with super highways we have lost
burma shave signs that were so clever
so enjoyable – but language changes
as well as highways and the last
word of this burma shave sequence
my grandkids didn't recognize:
"If hugging on highways – Is your sport
Turn in your car – For a davenport!"

2022 Jacqueline Jackson
