Osama’s Been Killed — Ten Haiku

Father forgive them,
for they know not what they do,
Yankees never say.

Osama’s been killed,
everyone’s now saying.
Firestorm will come soon.

An eye for an eye,
slaughter all people you fear.
Cold blood chills your veins.

Americans may
seem quite civilized at times.
Looks often deceive.

Summer follows spring;
autumn comes next for certain.
Blowback’s for sure, too.

To see justice done,
close right eye, obscure the left.
Drift off into dream.

Springtime arrives late.
Snows of far Afghanistan
cover many sins.

Summer’s searing heat
does not scorch nearly as much
as Pakistan’s nukes.

Enormous folly
resides in Great Leader’s mind.
People soon perish.

Murderous cycle
keeps turning in hardened hearts.
Fish can’t leap from lake.
