Flash Headlights for Curbside Service
by Larry Rogers

Due to a law implemented
over a half-century ago, you
can still order & drink a beer
in your vehicle at Ed Walker's
Drive-In Restaurant in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Tonight I ordered & consumed
1 burger & 1 Budweiser there,
& drove away blissfully ignorant
that patrons who avail themselves
of this opportunity are routinely pulled over
a couple of blocks down the street
to be certain they haven't abused it.
