Passing Through Airport Security

Passing Through Airport Security

 

By Elton Camp

 

A sign on the wall had this to say:

New security measures begin today

Due to terrorism they’ll commence

To be done a way much more intense

 

My turn came. I found what they mean

We can use this new scanning machine.

But radiation from it you’re sure to get

And we don’t know the effect of it yet.

 

In the picture it takes, you’ll look nude

We hope you won’t think it’s too crude

The only ones your image will now see

Behind a screen, out of sight, they’ll be

 

If you come to hear a laugh or a sneer

They don’t see your name, so never fear

If that is not something you want to do

We can give a search and pass you thru

 

“Ok, then give me a pat-down and see. 

Really, how much safer that must be.”

Oh, but then to my complete surprise

I felt a hand probing between my thighs

 

The security office went behind my back

I felt his hand going right down my crack

 I began to wonder if next I would find

A probe was being inserted up my behind

 

If I was wearing a big turban atop my head

And was muttering, “I wish infidels dead,”

Then such a search would sure be justified

And for such high-risk people be supplied

 

But surely there must be some better way

To guard against terrorism faced today

If not, even when a trip takes you far,

Consider going by bus or train or car
