I was in a Ritz Carlton Hotel on this important day

I asked for a hotel room at the Westin this day

They gave us a European sized room for four days

I told them the room is too small for us to stay for four days

They told me Minneapolis is all filled up for several days

We continued to stay in the small room for those days

We’ll sleep in a hotel we said

You’ll sleep in our bed and we’ll sleep on the couch they said

We were unsure boarding Saudi Airlines today

Over the speaker came a travel prayer

At Thanksgiving dinner Mohamed said Jesus will return again

But, he’s Muslim not a Christian I said

What’s that I see in Jumeirah at Etihad Towers’ today

Catholic Cardinals I see in the lobby today

And a high ranking Emirate with the Cardinals today

All dressed in white robes, red zucchettos and white keffiyeh

What a sight to see in the lobby today
