A Found Poem

A small rodent bummed a ride
on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Madrid.
The airline took swift action.
According to reports,
passengers on flight 150 saw the mouse
running down the centre aisle
after the plane landed in Spain.
The airline had the plane fumigated immediately.

The mouse died in due course,
and travellers booked on the return flight to Doha
had to wait for six hours while the fumes dissipated.

Many of the passengers missed connecting flights,
though the airline said it would cover any costs they incurred.

In October, a flight from Zurich, Switzerland, to Málaga, Spain,
was delayed five hours after the discovery of a mouse.

And last December, a flight from London to New York
was cancelled for the same reason.

Even though mice might seem to be a small threat,
airlines take such extreme precautions out of concern
that damage might have been done to complex electrical systems.
