Good Life

Wrong Way

Attention in the cockpit..... please don’t use your laptop

while you are piloting my flight.

We were due to arrive this morning - instead we landed

late last night.

My cell phone was silent beside me as you instructed me to do.

Why didn’t you just twitter me or even one of your crew?

We could have goggled directions and set ourselves on bearing

instead you emailed friends who thought that you were caring.

Thirty-seven thousand feet is awfully high, I’d say,

to fly around so casually with fighter pilots on the way.

Your laptop must take first place in everything you do.

I though you were getting paid, you nitwits,

to see us safely through.

Please don’t get me wrong, I actually like you guys,

but, please, leave your laptop at home when you are flying

in the skies.
