From bird s**t and the rain

To show it once again

Is at the window seat
Anytime impostor
Tidy up a neat
To tie to a confronter
Sit next to the eye

The gangway gives me shelter,
From bird s**t and the rain,
I shuffle for my ticket,
To show it once again,
Overhead the lockers,
Are full up to the brim,
Of shiny souvenirs,

Reserved a window seat,
In it an impostor,
Tidied up and neat,
Too tired to confront her,
I sit next to the aisle
