Existential departure lounge
Sorry, but passport bereft traveller can’t venture
Instead, seeking return to bosom of brood
Akin to kin, interim delay in one way flight sought
He’ll return eventually, aware avoidance not option.
Where art aviation controllers strike?
Where art handlers o’ baggage mischief?
Where art failure technical?
Where art meteorological interference?
Conspicuous by absence, undesired smooth path bequeathed.
Traveller aware no brood escapes pain of departure
His kin expectations unreasonable not
One more for the road, as proffered by Francis Albert
As family of Caledonian name seeking boarding higher than Gate 81
Clan Destine in the dark

Keith Richards dabbled with medication
Clan Destine seek traveller’s pain cessation
Allow once again eves of merlot bouquet and Bobby Darrin lament
A gratitude deserved by clan’s Clark Kent.
