Nipping In Jfk Airport - Poem by Chan Mongol

Nipping in JFK airport
2007



How dare they did that during my departure?
In two thousand seven, twenty first September!
I put my valuables in their trays for check up!
I took off my shoes I even had to bend over!

All my stuff passed their x-ray machine!
I walked through their security gate!
I had to bend over again to put on shoes!
That let the TSA security man, to pick pocket!

I could not find my valuable diamond ring!
Few thousand dollars, the price, the cost!
In Homeland Security area, with cameras on!
In high tech and glorious JFK Airport, I lost!

How come no sophistication of procedure?
No arrangement to protect passenger's property!
Science bestowed glamour to governments!
But sad and poor condition of Homeland Security!

I emailed TSA, filled up their forms and filed!
Demanded to run cameras to catch the thief!
To punish the scoundrel and clean the department!
To not to breach trust, to not to steal or nip!

How dare they did that during my departure?
in two thousand seven, twenty first September!
I put my valuables in their trays for check up!
I took off my shoes I even had to bend over!
