Bullies feed
Upon the weak
It's ever been
That way
And so it's best
To deal from strength
Before there's hell
To pay

 Flight 370 is missing. Somewhere in the Indian ocean, they say. Meanwhile, a man with empire aspirations starts gobbling up a sovereign nation (Ukraine). The plane...gets more play. The loss of life due to the wayward indeed unfortunate, heartbreaking, tragic. The potential loss of life due to blood-lust beyond words. 

Easily distracted are we. We like the manageable malady; the "have you heard?," facebook fodder. But dealing with a tyrant? That's hard. But, from experience, it will be harder...later. And, as we tend towards selfishness, we may leave this one (like our national debt) to our children. "Sorry kids. Do the best you can."

So distracted
By the plane
Ignore the tyrant
And Ukraine
Until our children
Feel the pain
'cause we're distracted
By the plane
