Ten Past Three

He was standing at that airport gate

She was coming home, but the plane was late

It was supposed to be in

at ten past three

He wondered “Why the delay, where could it be?”

Turns out they’d made a stop, down in Birmingham

It wasn’t scheduled, wasn’t planned

A mechanical problem forced them to land

Took them an hour to get airborne again
