A Fun Roadtrip Game

I’ve got my own favorite interstate road trip game.
No alphabets or plate’s states, that’s far too lame.

Instead I look around to solve those little mysteries
Like why the next car has five pine freshener trees.
Is there a dead hooker stinking up the trunk,
or is it just some spilt milk bringing in the funk?
How’d that huge guy squeeze into that sporty Z3,
and can he get out fast enough should he need to pee?
Does that man know through glass light both ways flows,
and if he can see me, I can see him mining in his nose?
Is that windowless van a killer’s charnel wagon –
the one whose driver’s face is tattooed with a dragon?

Those are just a few examples of how you can play
when you’re stuck in traffic on a road-trippy day.
