Airlines Left me Flat
The outlook wasn’t sunny for travelers that day
Northeast snow was piling up the weather channel did say
Then Jet Blue canceled flights and Airtran did the same
An eerie silence fell on the patrons of the travel game
I rushed to my computer to check on my flight home
Only to find the web site down so I had to use the phone
At the tone as told, my Onepass number I did enter
When the voice said “Say departures” I did so front and center
Hopes were riding high as the voice relayed “please wait”
But after minutes nothing happened ‘Strike One’ I thought ‘Just great’
When I heard “I’ll forward you to a customer service rep”
‘Better reserve a hotel room’ was the next thing I would set
A recording said the expected wait was 93 minutes time
‘Strike Two’ was the notion my weary brain did chime
Ninety minutes later a human voice unlike the others
Told me that my flight was cancelled but she’d help me find another
She searched and searched and checked for flights
I waited and listened way into the night
Oh somewhere in this great big land the schedules were right
Somewhere there were passengers with faces smiling bright
Somewhere people are going home along their travel route
But there is no joy in Boston – my Airline had cancelled out
