Russia's ruble's plummeting because of cheaper oil.
Tensions there are simmering and could come to a boil
As we tighten sanctions further, turning up the heat,
Hoping Russia changes course; that they'll admit defeat.
Problem, as I see it, is that Putin's still in charge
And his cult of personality's grown rather large.
Thanks to Russian media, which Putin now controls,
Most of Russia stands by him, according to the polls.
NATO says that Putin's getting bolder by the day;
Economic sanctions don't appear to hold much sway.
Those may work on other countries and their leaders, but
I've begun to worry Putin really is a nut.
