Email, High School Poem

> Subject: Poem written by a 16 yr. old Who got an A +
> from this teacher!
> Osama Bin Laden, your time is short;
> We'd rather you die, than come to court.
> Why are you hiding if it was in God's name?
> You're just a punk with a turban; a pathetic shame.
> I have a question, about your theory and laws;
> "How come you never die for the cause?"
> Is it because you're a coward who counts on others?
> Well, here in America, we stand by our brothers.
> As is usual, you failed in your mission;
> If you expected pure chaos, you can keep on wishin'
> Americans are now focused and stronger than ever;
> Your death has become our next endeavor.
> What you tried to kill, doesn't live in our walls;
> It's not in buildings or shopping malls.
> If all of our structures came crashing down;
> It would still be there, safe and sound.
> Because pride and courage can't be destroyed;
> Even if the towers leave a deep void.
> We'll band together and fill the holes
> We'll bury our dead and bless their souls.
> But then our energy will focus on you;
> And you'll feel the wrath of the Red, White and
> Blue.
> So slither and hide like a snake in the grass;
> Because America's coming to kick your ass!
