In Praise Of Delta Airlines [Part 3 of my Peach State Trilogy]
An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro
Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.
When objects of desire are unhappy,
They sometimes look for greener pastures?
And if they're treated downright crappy,
They will hit the road that much faster.
The NRA went to Atlanta,
Hoping to score a sweet incentive.
From the airline which we call Delta,
Then came LaPierre's lengthy invective.
It seems assault rifles need defending.
And the best defense is a great offense.
But Delta, and others, stopped pretending,
That NRA discounts made any sense.
But Georgia's Casey Cagle was not meek.
Delta's tax breaks he vowed to undo.
So I'm thinking the airline will soon seek,
A more sensible state for its HQ.
We'd welcome them to Kentucky.
Getting that revenue would be great.
But I'm doubting we'd be that lucky,
Since The Bluegrass is a ruby red state.
But what about Jefferson County.
It's bluer than a Wildcat's den.
We'd get a large share of the bounty,
And leave plenty for our country kin.
Before such success can be enjoyed,
We need more room for terminals to fill.
Mountain top removal could be employed,
To bulldoze the South End through Iroquois Hill.
But even if Merlin the Magician,
Got Delta here with the wave of a wand.
Some crazy ass politician,
Might screw things up, and they'd be gone.
