News in a Nutshell

Oh, how it does gladden
The foes of Bin Laden
To learn he has been killed.

Sweet revenge comes at last,
Osama's doom SEALed fast -
O'er the eye he was drilled.

Funeral rites were brief,
People sighed with relief,
No mortician was billed.

It's claimed his DNA
Is safely stored away,
Conspiratists aren't thrilled.

There is talk of a clone,
With genes just like his own,
The world is theory-filled.

If Elvis should appear,
Perhaps he'll make things clear,
And rumors will be stilled.
