I’m in row 2 seat A
mother with baby
strapped to her chest sways
Little boy in 2C
Little girl in 2D
Dad is shoving shit
lots and lots of shit
into all the overhead bins
And mom…
she keeps swaying
Dad plops next to me
Row 2 seat B
Mom straps into 3C
Teeny baby into 3D
Little girl in 2D cries
“Where’s mommy”
“I can’t see mommy”
“waah” “waah” “waah”
“I want mommy”

Hey, do you see that sign up there?
It says this is first class
there are no babies allowed in first class
Why the hell are three babies in first class?

Oh yeah,
we’re going to Disney World
Home of Mickey and the mouse thugs
Extortionists extraordinaire
squeezing moms & pops world-wide
for the all their moolah

Little girl keeps crying
I turn to sweaty dad
tell him we should relocate
move to row three
align mom
with the kiddies
duck, duck, goose
Tea party in row 2
Kids are happy
Mommy feels in control
Dad’s green eyes plea

No point in crying
at least I'm going home
watch the Incredibles
snack on nuts
and smile

It never hurts to smile

No body laughted louder than JM Barrie born like me in Kirriemui, like me attended thte same schools in Glasgow and Edinburgh and now I live in Dumfries where Barrie wrote Peter Pan. He was a very small man with a very big heart.
Let children experience as much as they can in all surroundings.
Well written

Nine hours of crying, helling kids, ain't fun.
Yup out side we sweetly smile at the little darlings.
in side we gently think. SHUT THE F**K UP. See that door saying exit.

Your plane ride sounds like a trip from hell LOL

"...Home of Micky and the mouse thugs"....LOL I'll be smiling the rest of that day just for that one line--definately worth the price of admission!

You take me on fascinating journeys through the power of your descriptive words--thank you, another wonderful (???) trip (how much do I owe you? LOL)

((((((HUGS)))))) and love, Karla. :)

You are a kind and compassionate soul, Sara - I was never very tolerant of sweaty Dads and wailing kids on airplanes - they can truly be quite aggravating.

PS Did you like The Incredibles? I thought it was OK.
