Magpie Tales 174: Before Hands Free...





















driver's ed


"perfunctory" describes our era - 
right hand, left hand, yes sir, no ma'am 

warnings emblazoned in red and white octagonal,
intersection risk assessment a learned behavior 

"stimulating" describes this melding 
of pungent habit and perfume.
