Fear of Flying…


Never have I liked to fly,

The picture above is the reason why,

My heart does hurt for those on board,

Much like their heads probably do,

As on the roof of the plane they do lie…


How does a plane get upside down?

Did it land that way, wheels opposite to the ground?

Where do you suppose it was eventually bound?

Hope it did not break the speed of sound,

On it’s way from the clouds to the ground down…


Fly would I if it were absolutely necessary,

Beyond that I would leave flying to a fairy,

They have their own wings and it must not be to them, scary,

Valium I would need for an extended flight,

Think I will just drive there, yes, for sure, I definitely might…J

I flew constantly for years and years - and it never bothered me at all. Then one day, I looked out a plane window into some deep dark storm clouds and thought, 'I'm insane for doing this' - been driving most everywhere, ever since - and been very happy about it.
