The Red Suitcase



RUBY TUESDAY

THE RED SUITCASE

A fissure underground in a country far away
Left a world of travelers stranded 'in mid-air'.
Well, not really 'in mid-air'! The opposite was true
But what concerned me was their underwear!
People do like to be 'naice' in every sort of way,
Not unsavoury and rather on the nose.
The whole world was in turmoil over volcanic dust
But what concerned me was the underclothes!

Nice poem. And I like how your photo captures the spirit of being stuck at an airport. Good choice for Ruby Tuesday.

Here's my RT entry.
