Airing My Airline Gripes

Airing My Airline Gripes (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

To travel by plane was once pleasant,
But flying’s horrific at present.
And that pre-flight routine—
Those airlines must mean
To make everyone feel like a peasant. 

(My travel humor is archived here.)

    I agree that air travel’s a drag
    Makes my face and my self-esteem sag
    So I went by Greyhound
    And I stayed on the ground
    Now my sense of self-worth has jet lag.

    A favor:
    Not a humorous post:

    The White house slipped a sneaky one on the US 2 weeks ago

    Apparently, we are no longer in a democracy.

    Check out MY blog for the scariest news story of this decade.

    Essentially, it discusses the white house’s new policy ALLOWING a
    co-ordinator of national policy, in case of “emergency”

    IT also Supercedes the ORIGINAL three part government, and will
    allow this “dictator” to do whatever HE wants in both GOVERNMENT and the Private sector.

    Thank you for bearing with me in this boring, post, but the MORE people
    (please send it to EVERYONE that you know, and EVERY editor/news person
    you can think of…)

    The Scariest thing is that there has been NOT even ONE story ANYWHERE on the web, besides on BLOGS

    Search for NSPD 51 (the National Security Presidential Directive) order.

    Very scary.
    Thanks for reading, and forwarding this to the WORLD!
    (and to your senator/representative in washington!)

    That is a good one! I love your limericks! And I hate airline travel…

    A poor passenger from O’Shea
    Once sat through a lengthy delay
    On a plane past midnight
    On a horrible flight
    That never got off the runway!
