Down But Not Out

 

Following the mockery I had another go,

Sure, I was feeling nervous but I hoped it would not show.

I got into the driver’s seat, did all my observations,

then I knew that I’d messed it up – a sinking down sensation.

The way was clear and I pulled out and started down the road

I had not indicated and that kind of set the mode.

You’re way too slow, no progress, I’ll have to mark it down,”

Then I’m driving way too fast – the whole thing makes me frown.

Keep position on the left, don’t move out of drive line.”

But then passing cars along the road I’m cutting it too fine!

They say that ‘practice does make perfect’ but that doesn’t seem to be,

It’s making me less confident, increasing stress for me;

The real thing is tomorrow and I’m going in there fighting,

Thinking that I’m gonna pass -- ‘fail’ not in my sighting.

The gauntlet, well it’s laying there – there really is no doubt

But Hully will be facing it –she’s down but she’s not out!
