An Ode to EasyJet

easyjetI’m sitting waiting on an EasyJet flight,
It’s a horrible shade of orange and it doesn’t look right,
We’re waiting 35 minutes & its getting late,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

The pilot is unhelpful, trying to sound upbeat,
“We might get an earlier window” – I wish he’d turn up the heat,
The food all has to be paid for – and don’t they tell it straight,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

What use is a plane with its wheels on the ground?
The incessant humming – what’s causing that sound?
We are all sitting here thinking “this isn’t great”,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

Some have large newspapers, some play cards on the plane,
The pilot informs us the delays ‘caus of rain,
Just give us something to do, something to create,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

Some look out of the window at the grass and distant leaves,
Some tell aircraft horror stories that everyone believes,
An Australian helpfully tells me “It’ll be alright mate”, but,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

Its finally here, time to depart, get into the sky,
After 45 long minutes, a 30-minute trip we will fly,
Its EasyJets lack of customer service that we hate

BECAUSE…

There’s nothing to do but SIT, SHIVER and WAIT!
