Bin Laden Tribute?

With today's announcement that US forces have killed Osama Bin Laden, preparations are underway to appropriately recognize his death and the affect his life has had on all of us. While a public ceremony in Washington is unlikely since he was not a recognized head of state, several activities are planned.

Elton John is rumored to be revising his classic Marilyn Monroe tribute song "Candle in the Wind" in the same manner he did for Princess Diana after her death.  Dogs and Jeans has obtained an advanced copy of the new lyrics of "Cancer in the Head":

Goodbye Osama Bin
Though I never knew you at all.
You had the nerve to hide yourself
While those around you crawled;
They crawled out of the mountains
And they hijacked commuter planes.
They took lives of the innocent
And hailed you in Allah’s name.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a cancer in the head,
Never knowing who was next to die
When infection spread.
And I would have liked to crush you
When you were just a kid.
Your cancer would have stopped before
Your killing ever did

Holiness was tough
The toughest role you ever played.
Martyrdom created a superstar
And pain was the price we paid.
Even when you fled
The Marines still hounded you.
All the papers had to say
Was Osama was shot in the head.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a cancer in the head,
Never knowing who was next to die
When infection spread.
And I would have liked to crush you
When you were just a kid.
Your cancer would have stopped before
Your killing ever did

Goodbye Osama Bin
From the free and democratic world,
Who sees you as something as more than evil;
More than just our Osama Bin Laden.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a cancer in the head,
Never knowing who was next to die
When infection spread.
And I would have liked to crush you
When you were just a kid.
Your cancer would have stopped before
Your killing ever did.
