LIFE IN THE UK TEST: DRIVING

Over the policeman’s shoulder, I can see that

In his notes, he changes my answers

to barely articulate English. I say

 “I’m smart, I swear, I have a PhD, here, here,”

but he gives me a disappointed look

and shakes his head slowly.

“I did not know rules, sorry, no rules”

he jots down, not taking his eyes off me.
