Ideal place to commit
A public scandal; but the situation
Is inevitably pushing me to its brink; you see,
For hours, I’ve been trying the best I can to control
My aboriginal temperament; but all my primeval defenses
Have now fallen apart;
HERE I AM
CASTING TO THE FOUR WINDS
ALL PROTOCOLS OF GOOD MANNERS AND RIGHT CONDUCT
TO DRESS DOWN AN AIRLINE OFFICER FOR FAILURE TO MAKE
THE MANADATORY FLIGHT DELAY ANNOUNCEMENT; you know
Our flight was scheduled to depart four hours ago.
I confess, I had never done this social anomaly before; but taking
For granted three hundred or more passengers and keeping them
Totally in the dark about the status of their flight is too much for my
Polite heart to bear; it breaches all bounds of civil grace.
So I blow my top.
