'Twas the holiday season and all around us
Families were traveling by car, truck and bus.
While many were caught up in traffic’s nightmare
The smarter ones chose to travel by air.
The smartest of all let their choice be Southwest
For they knew in a moment they’d be cared for the best.
The families all chose to go far and wide
And knew on Southwest they would travel with pride.
They packed swimsuits and flip flops, skis and snowshoes
Not a worry they had, bags fly free by twos.
While counter agents check bags and print boarding passes
Gate Agents and Ops help steady the masses.
Ramp Agents, like elves, work quick on the line
To assure all our flights would have takeoffs on time.
“On one bag on two bags then load up that freight
Now close all the doors and push back from the gate”.
Once folks are on board and all buckled up tight
The crew makes announcements to ready the flight.
They’ll show you the exits and how everything works
Where your two carryons go, another one of our perks.
While in flight they’ll serve snacks, free soft drinks and more
And when you arrive they’ll thank you at the door.
Now go claim your bags they’ll be spinning around
If uncertain where yours are, don’t fret and don’t frown.
Baggage agents are there to help show you the way
If your bags are too many, Skycaps load your sleigh.
So, go visit your family and go visit your friends
Southwest is your best choice, you’ll see in the end.
And don’t be surprised if on this Christmas night
You hear Southwest pilots call as they zoom out of sight,
“Merry Christmas with LUV and to all a great flight!"
