The Vicissitudes Of Modern Air Travel

I relax and sip my martini cruising at 40000 feet. If only my bags arrive with me, all will be complete I arrive in Tokyo and watch the carousel go 'round and 'round. Although it made many circuits, my luggage could not be found! Here I sit forlorn in the terminal in Tokyo, Japan. Alas, my shirts and drawers ended up in Kyrgyzstan! Robert L.

Ooooh the ordeals of flying ... most amusing, Bob. I do believe finding "Kyrgyzstan" in a poem is a first! Heck. I don't think I've EVER heard that word before until now.

Thanks, Time - glad you enjoyed. Kyrgystan is one of the many "stans" of countries in the upper mid-east. Take care - bob
