Accent

Accent
Crackling PA system

Cackling passengers

And engine

noise fill

The cabin 

And our ears.

An accented voice

Friendly and helpful

Tries to send

Its message to passengers.

I cannot decipher 

The message from the din

Of what resounds

On my ears within.

Now I grasp –  

But barely – 

How those who migrate

Have to cope

In understanding 

The message

In the cacophony of noise.
