A cool sojourn


 

Sleep overcame worries on the airport floor
cancelled flights, hungry rumbles and late nights
all taking a toll
The cold air, running water and clean toilets
they could marvel at these and die happily there
-a brief respite from hard physical labour
and the blazing fields back home

They huddled in colourful groups
the best of their clothes on them
the banished ones
going home again
with some carefully folded notes
and a small bundle of gifts
to ease the impoverished lives
of a few, in some unfair corners of life.
