Wild Spider In The Sky - Poem by kp. shashidharan

Babe, didn’t it happen
When we were in the sky
In the mid air
Flying in the super jet aircraft
While having sumptuous lunch in the air
In between the starting point
And the destination!

Suspended were we
In the stratosphere
When the pilot told:
“We are landing
The same place
We took off! ”

Alarmed we looked
Knowing not
Hijacking, accident
Error in the engine?

Pink beautiful cheeks
Of the young air hostess smiled
Bringing the freshness of blooming roses

Her pretty lips
Painted in lovely red lipstick pursed
Pearl like white teeth sparkled:
“Don’t you worry, madam
Just a small crack on the windshield!
You’ll get connecting aircraft
To the destination!
Just relax!

We’ll be there
At the starting place
Just in twenty minutes”

Place: New Delhi (India)
