The cover your mouth brigade at SFO

The SFO flight east was delayed three hours.
A cacophony of coughs filled the terminal International Terminal.
A dry cough here, a hack cough there, here a cough…there a cough
And no one was covering their mouths.
No one.
Two children walked through the waiting area with boxes of Kleenex,
Handing a white tissue to each passenger
And a little town crier, age 8, at most, follows mere steps behind and
Prays “Cover your mouth, please, cover your mouth please.”
