In olden times, ladies covered up when the sun was out--broad-brimmed hats, high necks, long sleeves, even gloves. All of which were discarded in the golden days of tanning, skin cancer, and premature aging.

What goes around comes around. Fio now pulls on gloves when she drives, especially on the left hand, which has already developed two and a half brown spots. And she wears longer sleeves and buttons her blouses to the top.

Oh, for a poke bonnet.

Well hello! Unless Fio drives a convertible
Which really would be apropos
No worries about sun burn, skin cancer, or aging
UV won't penetrate glass windows

No need for gloves and long sleeves
Forget the poke bonnet and such
So, watch out for road islands while driving
Unbutton and let some skin show
