Written for: Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 27
Write a take off poem, e.g. take off from work, a runway, a dangerous situation, or maybe even a comfortable one.
The line denotes a wait of hours.
To quiet screaming children down,
toys are pulled from bags, as parents glower.
A slew of requests for candy drowns
out announcements regarding flights.
At front of the line a man beeps and frowns.
All flights are cancelled, bad weather, poor sight.
An uproar ensues, passengers flustered.
Just where will families spend the night?
Next morning comes; people are disgusted,
the toilets have lines, nothing is clean.
When the line reforms, someone is busted.
