by Susan Supley

Bin Laden is dead
His spawn live on,
Exult at the rejoicing,
Where lies victory?

Susan Supley lives in Florida, and is retired. Not having to work for a living, she is therefore able to live as a poet. Her work has been seen in The Healing Muse, The New Verse News, Secret Garden Newsletter and her blog, aturtlespeaks.
