The fun before the fun begins,
The prequel to the show
The medium for your destination
The first step for your excitement to grow.
Plane rides! Quite exhilarating
Even for motion sick victims like me
Provided an adult’s managing all the work
(Thanks parents!) it’s all fun and carefree.
Skidding on vast airport lobbies
Getting to board the aircraft at last
Bidding your hometown farewell for a while
Ready to go and have a blast!
Finding your seat and plopping down
Flipping through airport magazines
Collecting and keeping aside vomit bags
While ignoring hostess’ procedural scenes.
At last, with a soft rumble
Picking up speed, by and by
The plane prepares for takeoff
Lo and behold! We’re in the sky!
Inches away from fluffy white clouds
Afloat in the stratosphere; flying
Oh, plane rides- they’re pretty great
Besides the blocked ears and babies crying.
