Syria fell off the world this week

because a bunch of greedy, grotesquely-overpaid,
air-conditioned, non-African, oil-industry employees
were taken hostage in the Sahara.
Had it been just a bunch of Algerians
we would have heard little.
But some 'Britons' died
in what the British Prime Minister
called an appalling act of terrorism.

Meanwhile, thousands upon thousands
of non-'Britons' die every hour in serious
conflicts elsewhere in Africa, in Afghanistan
and in  Syria's ghastly civil war.
