I am sitting by a grown man
In this grown up plane
Full of suits and business gone stale.

A laptop spits cartoons.
The grown up man, serious, watches.
It’s a silly cartoon. No irony. No flair.

And this very serious man
Wears his new polo and his big watch
Exposing his charmless office profile

While watching cartoons
On his laptop, in this plane,
Such a soulless travel trap

So tired, so Friday evening
So late business, so I-want-home
So I-eat-crisps and cheap crap.


I try to concentrate
On my window
And I smile

At the blond haired blandly drawn boy
Who plays at being scared of blue monsters
And makes this tired boring grown man
