I went to renew my driver’s license. It’s not my fault that no one can recognize me by this photo on my new driver’s license. The clerk said sit, do not smile, look at the lens here and then a bright light produced a click (this is a clerk you do not argue with) . She never told me the wind had made a mess of my hair (but no one can tell). It took 5 minutes of noise and whining by the machine to spit out my (perfect) new driver’s license. I had paid my fee – so I took what the clerk handed me. Anyone can use my new license for an ID – cause it doesn’t look like me. The limerick below is perfect – it describes me to a T!
(My driver’s license is not quite as blurry as this, you can read all the words and numbers.)
Limerick by Anthony Euwer
For beauty I am not a star,
There are others more handsome by far;
But my face I don’t mind it,
For I am behind it.
It’s the people in front that I jar.
