They say that bin Laden
Got shot through the noggin
Flown to the Arabian Sea.
Wrapped in a shroud as white as a cloud
And dumped overboard. Now he’s just shark sushi.
In New York, in DC, when they heard the news
They flew to the places Al Qaeda had burned.
And crowed out so loud, so long, and so proud
Bin Laden is Dead! But the news cycle churned
And in reaction, Frau Merkel, said she,
Was glad that bin Laden was as dead as can be.
Poor ol’ Frau Merkel, her words didn’t fit.
You just can’t say that. It’s un-Christian, you twit.
But if she’d have said she’s sorry he’s dead
I suppose they’d be calling right now for her head.
So here’s some advice for dear Angie to take,
Reflecting on all that’s come in its wake,
Better to say in a roundabout way – just to keep the judges at bay –
I’m pleased that he’s no longer able to harm
Or just keep your mouth shut.
Works like a charm.
