Families don’t take Sunday drives anymore
But when I was a kid
We’d pile in the car, hit the road and explore.
It was something folks back then did .
The point was to go for a leisurely ride,
no hurry, and no real destination.
We might stop for ice cream or cokes from inside
some open screen-door filling station.
Way out in the sticks, with dad at the wheel, we’d take in all the scenery we passed.
These afternoon outings would make us all feel,
going nowhere is really a blast!
