Survival

I watched closely,
Maybe too closely….

He sat with a giddy smile on his face,
Confident that this was his day,
“Oh my…” I muttered nervously.

She sat next to him,
Clipboard in hand.
She wore a grim expression,
Clenched her clipboard and, I noticed, motioned that he begin.

It was now survival of the fittest,
For my 16-year-old son,
And the drive test evaluator, too.

I could not watch any longer,
They drove away from my site.
I sat in the seat,
At the DMV.
