The word automobile comes,
via the French automobile from the Ancient Greek word αὐτός (autós, "self") and the Latin mobilis ("movable"); meaning a vehicle that moves itself.
While driving back from York, South Carolina today, I noticed a gallery of former automobiles...
the scene took a moment to process.
Was that a row of cars?
I pulled over and turned around.
And there they were... rusty reminders of a slower time,
forced to watch their kin pass by.
From their roadside perch, the silent sentries spoke,
"Tu fui ego eris."
It is, as they say, the last laugh.
