Great Airline Price Increase
Speeding to the airport for a flight,
by Hubert Wilson
Horrified upon arrival - prices tripled AGAIN just overnight!
Almost everything now has a fee,
Forget about anything being free?
Take a blanket or a pillow,
Irritating part of a never ending financial peccadillo?
Not a single free drink,
Gosh, even a charge for the glass - you think?
Take a visit to the restroom,
High fee to even flush does loom?
Expect a charge for a desired seat,
Probably another for where to place my feet?
Unloading the overhead bin,
Better deposit coins and bills to retrieve what's within?
Leaving the airplane gangway -
Insult added to dismay -
Could not LEAVE unless AGAIN I pay?
Remembering the video of Paul Revere and the Raiders performing 'The Great Airplane Strike'. Geez, I'm older than John McCain and Grandpa Simpson COMBINED?
