My husband took a job
But not local
No – Overseas
Half way across the world
He would be living from me.
That’s okay we would follow him
Come rain or hail or COVID
Dust settling and all that
We popped down to Sydney
Flights from Brisbane a no go
And waited in Sdyney International –
Barren of almost all travellers.
When at last it came time to board the plane
We discovered to our delight
A row of seats waited for thee
The luxury of International flight.
You see it’s hard to fly into Aus
Our government closed the borders
And to leave you need a permit
Swearing your departure is no holiday.
So when you manage to board a plane
Flying over the Pacific Ocean
You find there are only a few handfuls of travellers
Each with a window seat
No queue for the toilet
No waiting for the attendants
Everything is quite pleasant
Except for one slight problem
For those of us with embarrassing food issues
There are no dietry requirements.
