Drive to Your Dreams!

"The Department of Motor Vehicles"...

Not very poetic to say it
Not at all pretty to see
The clerks are not very friendly
Not that I would expect them to be.

The walls are quite drab and depressing
Lines of people spill out the front door
A monotone voice makes announcements
"Now serving G - zero - two - four".

There's no way of getting around it
This DMV hell, so it seems
Passing tests of patience and knowledge
Before you can drive to your dreams.

For my daughter: who passed!!

Inspiration strikes at the oddest places sometimes, but seriously, what else is there to do while you are waiting at the DMV?  After a while I started getting punchy. I looked outside and it was pouring down rain...of course. Could the day get any better? I had to laugh or I was gonna' cry. Whatcha' gonna' do? 


Raining...of Course.

At the DMV waiting
Of course it starts raining
My car's parked a mile away.

I hope it will let up
but I don't even get up
"That's just great!" is all I can say.

And to all those DMV employees: I apologize, my heart goes out to you, but hey, would it kill you to smile?
