Plane Ride

Pilot says it time for take off
Toddlers screaming their heads off
They scream because they decide not to wear there seat belt
After your 2 hour delay thanks to delta
you wait 10 more minutes from the foolishness from the kids
Take off comes you chew your gum faster and faster
To prevent the popping ears while take off
You also get a head ache not from the flying but from the baby a seat in front of you
You moan you snarl while the baby cries and cries
The seats are uncomfortable economy class is to blame
You beg for an upgrade to business class
While your face is crushed against the window from the Fat Man
The air is stale like breathing in a bathroom in a 40 year old broken down desolate house.
The food finally comes you hope it’s edible then question pops up chicken or pasta
I choose the pasta
Tastes like rubber you tell your self its still food
Now you’re on your 12th hour of flying you try to sleep
you try but you never manage
Once you reach your final destination your week gets ruined
because of one thing flying jet lags the worse part of all

Nice. Having flown from the Middle East to the East Coast with a baby that seemed to cry the entire time, I can certainly understand.

Err...Not really a poem, if thats what it was supposed to be. The spacing and wording is wrong, the meaning is too obvious, no metaphors, no similes...No visual imagery...

Well, good job though, you are only 10 (?).
