If Osama Bin Laden is Captured

If Osama Bin Laden is Captured

 

By Elton Camp



The president lay down to pleasant dreams

Osama Bin Laden has been caught it seems

A dream so strong shocked him wide awake

“He mused, what direction will this now take?”



Will the man just sit in the martyrs’ chair?

Having now been captured may put him there

What developments can we expect to ensue?

Will acts of violence his imprisonment renew?



What if insistent demands for the zealot’s release

Are the price his followers demand for peace?

How many deaths of innocents would be enough

To decide that holding him is just far too tough?



Most likely bin Laden we will hold for a while

But how soon, if ever, will he be put on trial?

If convicted, what punishment will we decide?

Shall he be put to death or in prison long reside?



The president paced the floor in total dismay

He didn’t know what to the nation best to say

As he was about to give in to most total grief

Realizing it was a dream brought him great relief



          “Be careful what you wish for. 

                You just might get it.”
