Obama Is Dead?

My friend said the other day
While reading the news on the 4th of May
"So....Obama's dead"
I only had to look before his face turned red
"I meant...Osama" he mumbled
All I could think was...hmmm...interesting fumble

You see he wasn't the first or last one
To mispronounce the guy who found the wrong end of the gun
I heard others do verbal double takes
"Oh crap! My mistake"

This added to the mass speculation
Whether his death was just an illusion
Just another deflection is it?
From the supposed truth lost in the myth

I don't really know where I am going with this
Though it's funny when the facts get missed
Its Osama not Obama who they say is dead
Good to remember without having to go red
