The Muse Among the Motors

The Idiot Boy


Rudyard Kipling

HE WANDERED down the moutain grade
    Beyond the speed assigned—
A youth whom Justice often stayed
    And generally fined.

He went alone, that none might know
    If he could drive or steer.
Now he is in the ditch, and Oh!
    The differential gear!
