The speeding cars that weave the traffic lanes Will run you off the road if you don't race. They guzzle precious gas for all their pains And we must too to keep their wasteful pace. And then the farmers all along the route Take subsidies that Congress deigns to mete the global-warming drought With sigffit at one can hardly call discrete. And yet, it is the fastest way that you can go. Though traffic may be grim, it keeps a steady flow.
