ON A WING AND A PRAYER - A New Drabble

On a Wing and a Prayer by Rick Haynes


I arrive at The Poorly Hospital International Arrivals Lounge.
‘Good morning. Welcome to Poorly. Your expected journey time is six days incarceration in one of our 5 star prisons, only joking, rooms. You will be flying as high as a kite in about two hours. Sister, please introduce our specialist crew.’ 
‘Thomas, our First Officer, he will put you to sleep, eventually. Stewardess Dolly will hold your hand, tightly, and Captain Matthew will entice you to sign the consent form.’
I receive an epidural. When I awake the pain is unbelievable.
I look down.
Looks like I didn’t make it.
