So yeah... I was on holiday the past 2 weeks, and having just returned, today was very much a dedicated travel day... Now, usually I'd sit there in the waiting room after faking enthusiasm at the range of aftershaves in duty free, doing not a lot other than being generally miserable about the experience... But y'know... I got bored, so did one of my lyrical revamps to the great Otis Reading... Enjoy...

Sitting in the waiting room
I'm just wanting to be getting on home.
Watching people buying
Some grim, last minute chocolate things.
I'm just sitting here watching them pay
A tenner for an m'n'm branded duvet.
I'm just sitting, waiting for my plane,
Surrounded by ill foreigners,
And an orchestrally crying baby.
Across, a mum who thought "It'd be handy
To pack a seven course picnic for the day..."
But, I'm just gon' sit saying that it's ok,
Cos the whiney bitch flying here to LA
's got another seven hour delay,
And I'm on time.
I just want to board my plane;
Not arrive 4 hours before to feign
Being ok, getting rubbed down by a massive dude,
Just so I can just sit, and wait again...
Now I'm pretending to text on my phone,
Cos this homeless guy won't leave me alone.
Begging me for a loan,
In a currency I no longer own.
Instead, I'm gonna sit here and watch him play
A tune with his toes on ukulele.
Wait 'til he's finished, and say:
So yeah... An hour well spent I feel...
