Bin Laden’s Ground Zero

Good news out of Abbottabad

There’s good news from Abbottabad.
Bin Laden’s death makes justice glad.
This mastermind of mindless terror
must now face Heaven’s court.

Goliath fell to David’s sling.
A waiting world at last can sing
of just desserts for what occurred
not quite ten years ago.

Since then he hid in caves unknown,
but now al-Qaida’s king’s dethroned.
His lifeless body has become
a feast for bottom fish.

His own ground zero came at last.
But lest we think our risk is past,
we’d best beware and be alert
to what his death might mean.
