When you travel with a stoma
to Hong Kong or Oklahoma.
If you make sure that you’re prepared,
there’s nothing that should make you scared.
Roving with stomas is not hard.
so long as you have some safeguards.
Don’t pack your worries or your fear,
then they will not interfere.
You’ll be allowed a carry bag,
which makes it much less of a drag.
Here is a nifty little ruse -
take thrice as much of things you use.
Your medical stuff will not count
as part of your allowed amount.
Plus customs cuts you lots of slack
with the type of stuff you pack.
Make sure you take a pocket card,
which makes explaining not so hard.
I know that some folk have researched,
what you can do if body’s searched.
So if by a remote perchance,
customs want a detailed glance.
Ask for a medic to be there
to treat your stoma with some care.
Scissors are another thing
that most people cannot bring.
But there are some that I have found
that have one end bulbous and round.
Such things are often overlooked
or not thought of once you’ve booked.
You might not get all things just right,
yet you will still enjoy your flight.
