In the Desert of Iraq

It took awhile to find Osama.
It will take awhile to find
the Briton with his knife
in the desert of Iraq.
They may bring him back 
unless a verdict’s rendered
in the desert 
enabling the Briton
to discover in a second
all the virgins 
awaiting his arrival
unless he finds 
he’s sitting with Osama
holding marshmallows 
blackened on a stick.
