Ode to Usama

Posted on 03 May 2012


As we mark a year since Osama bin Laden was brought to justice, the following verses are apropos:


As we gather at ground zero

to honor and  respect the heroes

that gave it their all as the towers did fall

and a wrong that won’t be forgiven


As America wept our flag it waved

A salute in solemn splendor

for the land of the free

and the home of the brave

with a message “no surrender”


A Presidential pledge

 to his people he said

We’ll get them if it takes years


And years it did take

but then came a break

of the whereabouts

of the villain


Covert plans were made

for the debt must be paid

And justice demanded a killin’


Swiftly they came in the dark of night

on the wings of Black-hawks

in stealthy flight


To settle a score that was made

and a pledge that was overdue


As they swarmed the compound

with that in mind

Usama would get his due


There once was a man named Usama

that envisioned himself like Obama

he got shot in the head

and the last words he said were

“Oh shit” I’m having a trauma.
