A wing and a prayer

Wilco Tango Foxtrot.

The Boeing 757 had an unexpected diversion in Townsville,
A pleasant enough place if you’ve some spare time to kill,
And though John’s smiling sunnily, he wants to get going,
But there’s no hurrying up that old banged-up Boeing.

Once rolling down the runway John looks around the 757
And then raises his eyes up high to He who art in Heaven,
Once he touches down his will, not His, sure will be done;
No more hair-raising hi-jinks for him on Air Farce One.

(NZ Prime Minister and his delegation flying to India in an old Air Force plane
stop overnight at Townsville when the plane breaks down… The sources are reliable the 757 isn’t )
