I’m Not Going

I’d pUt mY oWn FaMiLy On iT!

These words ring out in your head,
As you look down at the boarding ticketβ€”

737 MAX;

(The max, the max,
It’s the ‘MAX’ that does it!
Standing blatantly as it does, for MAXimum profits);

Oh the connotations that name conjures up…
Whatever you do, from now on,
It’ll always be synonymous with a bunch of things,
None of them pretty!

Greed,
Corruption,
Boeing,
FAA,
Death,
Mis-management,
Cover-up,
Deep pockets,
MCAS,
Faulty sensor reading,
Lion Air,
Ethiopian Airlines,
Nose-down,
Grounding,
Profits over lives!

It turns out that Boeing has been quietly rebranding the 737-MAX-8 to 737-8. So actually the scenario I described will never happen :).
