Pilot, What’s the Destination?

By January 21, 2010 No Comments

Electronic information of individuality
Logout upon our senses with a new defined banality
Departure operated bits of bitter paper proof
Its confirmation underlined by status tossed aloof

Bodies flow like baggage moving slowly lane by lane
X-rayed for your convenience, we’re securing the insane
Delayed for forty hours sleeping mummified you wait
Breathing mechanism air and creeping gate to gate

Rushing squeezed anatomy, passengers fill the plane
Demonstrated seatbelt function, feeding peanuts to their brains
Loading and unloading, people march on sardine time
To be radiated humans standing in another line

Packages of travelers arrive at noted birth
To reconfirm our flight duration on requested Earth
Managing economy with reservation name
Refunds and exchanges become all that we maintain
