To fly from her provincial
home city to the folk music
holiday weekend in the country

She chose the very cheap air fares
of the budget airline so she
had to fly to the vast mega city
then out again. This lengthy
trip gave the cheapest fares.

A thick dark fog monster
choked the mega city’s airport
with clogging swirling vapour.

The budget air line with its budget
skeleton staff slogged to rebook
its passengers around the country
on its budget skeleton air fleet.

She arrived one day late for
her folk music holiday weekend.
