Indulgent Parents at the DMV
You’ve studied so hard and we’re screamingly proud.
You’ve done everything perfect, for crying out loud.
You’ve conquered the manual, drive in the dark,
avoiding pedestrians. Parallel park.
You knew all the signals for stopping and turning.
Looked perfectly calm, though your stomach was churning.
It’s such a travesty you didn’t pass.
That inspector was prejudiced, ornery and crass.
Your driving test was perfect. Almost.
Anyone could have missed seeing that post!
