first class curtain

They sashay past in navy skirts

And crimson ties around their necks,

Little hats perched on heads.

Champagne? they call,

Pushing trolleys down the aisles.

Peanuts? Pretzels? Chicken? Beef?

And then they disappear

Behind that velvet curtain

Where the magic people live,

The ones with money, fame,

People more important than you and I.

One thought on “first class curtain

    Oh, you capture that very well, Rachel! There is most definitely a class difference when you fly, isn’t there? And it’s interesting how the employees treat FC passengers – as though they were inherently better. Little wonder other people can get resentful of that.
