song of flight to manhattan

i have always loved american
so i flew with the airlines
by that name
they took my scooter,
because i’m challenged,
physically challenged,
they took my scooter
and promised that it would arrive
at jfk with me
but this is not a grimm’s tale
so my story took
a rod serling twist

my scooter didn’t make the flight
and i didn’t know until i landed
and found that i was stranded
with only my amputated leg to stand on
and my spouse’s shoulders to cry on
