Airport Human Zoo.

Teresa Whitney 1951 (Tacoma)



Awaiting at the airport,
About a half past seven,
Checking in my baggage,
Nothing at all like heaven,

The porter there, he helped me,
Lifting bags of weight,
He asked me where I am going,
My ticket had the state,

Papers were exchanged,
Money handled too,
What a crazy riot,
The airport human zoo,

Departing the loading zone,
Heading for the gate,
An awakening surprise,
My head began to ache,

The ticket agent told me,
You are fifteen minutes late,
Your plane has since departed,
Oh for goodness sake,

Emotions soaring big time,
I wanted just to scream,
I took a seat instead,
Upon my bags I leaned,

Seats were over booked,
They put me on stand by,
All that I could do,
Was sit, and wonder why,

Watching people traveling,
Going every where,
It did not seem to me,
They even had a care,

I wondered right that moment,
If others even knew,
Their at the crazy home of,
The airport human zoo.
