    Yes, it's true, now I think about it; car horns do honk in the key of F, but I thought it was just the note F rather than an F chord, and if that is true it hardly seems intelligible to say that they are in the *key* of F (F major I presume) . G or B flat or anything else other than F would seem wrong somehow. I wonder why they are tuned to the pitch they are tuned to.
    At least, that's what I think — unless it's a side-effect of reading your poem.
    I like your poem, by the way.
