While others slumber

I have to wonder

'Bout the guy who works below

Has our controller

Pigeon holer

Lined the planes up in a row?

And are we seen

Upon his screen

And is his mind as sharp as day?

Or is he thinking

All this blinking

Is a video game to play?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I have the greatest respect for air traffic controllers.  I hope the feeling is mutual!

Hmmm....i think the last line is most interesting and powerful.... a video game for him to play?~! Perhaps,, perhaps... Like a BIG playstation, with blinking lights and moving objects...only that the objects carry humans and it is all the more dangerous... Smilesz... Great show here, Terry. Smilesz...thanxs for sharing this Flight.
