Business Travel: A Poem in 12 Lines

Don't take your shoes off, please.
Would you do that in a client meeting?
Don't answer that.

Crushing push toward the gate agent
Who you know cannot help you
Even if he wanted to.

Blue screen of death means something different here.
Reflected in the eyes of weary travelers
Gazing up at delay announcements.

"It's not all bad," you repeat to yourself
How else will you rise to the top?
Don't answer that.
