Prompt ~ AIRBUS ACQUISITIONS
by John Yeo
‘If we’re going to make any permanent decisions
to keep our passenger service up and running,
We have to make some rapid Airbus acquisitions.’
A remark either stupid or incredibly cunning.
The board sat up in puzzled, shocked amazement,
Fiery, Sir Fred shouted, ‘Are you stark raving mad?
There’s a worldwide pandemic without containment.
Without passengers or income, things look really bad!’
There were nods of agreement from around the table,
‘The accountant continued, ‘We have enough in reserve
for investment and to keep our services stable.
We just need to be bold and to hold our nerve.’
Pandemonium broke out with angry loud disagreement
The chairman raised his voice , ‘Allow him to continue,’
‘Thank you. The market nosediving is quite convenient,
Everyone is strugglng this pandemic came out of the blue.’
Silence reigned as the atmosphere settled with interest,
‘The pandemic will be allayed with medical achievement
Passengers will travel and repay the investment,
We’ll be ready and able to expand when it’s finished
With some Airbus Acquisitions from the bargain basement.’
