I know that Sy Hersch and others worked hard,
To tell us the story, turn o'er every shard,
They've brought us detail with all scuttlebutt,
They've filled in the gaps and told us what's what,
And yet I find there are black holes unfilled:
Was The Man indeed there? Was it he who killed?
The reason I'm puzzled goes back a long way,
When OBL entered, did Le Figaro say,
The American Hospital in downtown Dubai,
For double di-al and just to say hi,
To our local CIA, Dubai head of station,
Who brought candy, flowers and polite consolation.
True or not, Osama looked finished,
