Weather affects people in manydifferent ways.
snow and ice in Texas
means school is closed for days.
Banks and businesses close
due to the unsafe conditions.
But no not the airport
we come to work anyway
even with the multiple opposition's.
We battle the icy roads.
As our families pray for our safety,
our minds are filled with
thoughts of airport codes.
Thunder and lightning
Soothing to those at home.
They watch television
and stay indoors.
while the airline employee
is soaked
feeling the cold and wet
in every one of their pours.
Passengers are angry
and incomprehensible,
screaming profanities.
Agents can only nod
trying to explain the inevitable.
"We don't Know
when the storm will subside?"
"I'm sorry 11:45 is only
the estimated departure time."
Don't yell at us
we didn't make it rain.
We're only gate agents
Not Gods
come on use your damn brains.
When the early morning
fog is thick
you just turn on your brights
we would rather
call in sick.
When the sky is beaming and radiant
with lightning rays.
Children count till the thunder drums.
A living hell is what
the airport becomes.
Ramp is closed.
No airplane in or out.
"I'll never fly delta again"
is all the people shout.
We come to work
though thick and thin.
working for the public is hell
that's all it has been.
So next time you fly
be patient please.
so we can do our job
and be left at ease.
We're all in this together.
So before you
start to bicker
no one controls the weather.
