What to Do When Seatbelted Too Long

Defy the Captain of the plane;
Add your own extender.

Go to the head
Anyway.

Scream for HELP!
Everyone else feels claustrophobic!
Harmonize the tantrum.

Try walking up the wall,
back of the seat,
to music.
Yoga release.

Pass the shrimp ring around;
They’re all sick of peanuts and pretzels
Especially after four hours of turbulence
and an ORDER not to move around the cabin.

Try conversation
with someone new;
Someone who broke her spine when tossed into the ceiling of the plane
and ruptured four discs.

Then breathe deeply.
Reach down for grounding at 10,000 feet.

Clap loudly
when you land safely
Alitalia style!!!!!
