The Lyrics

Tamerlan Tsarnaev: Not just any body http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-sapolsky-corpses-tsarnaev-20130517,0,811756.story Original song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc5JLrpXpkE
Who will bury a young bomber
Who’s shot by cops, and needs to rest?
“Not us!” said the Small Town.
“We won’t share our graveyard with no terrorist,
And our pure holy ground’s too good for that beast…”

Who’ll inter a little bomber,
And who will speak a little prayer?
“Not us!” said the Mosque.
“Though he worshipped with us, we’ll thoroughly disown.
We’d be hounded to death if those ties became known…”

And who will have mercy in his mind,
And who’ll take this decaying bomber?
“Not us!” said the Commonwealth.
“Oh, we’ll bury rapists, mass shooters, and drunks,
But not un-Amer’can Muslim young punks…”

Who’ll inter a rotting bomber?
Will no one claim him secretly?
“One will,” said the Lord,
“For all I’ve created is precious to me.
On earth was he born; in earth he shall be.”

This was a good religious song. It's a little weird seeing that God is the only one who has a soft spot for this terrorist but it does make sense since God forgives all.

Actually he's been buried secretly in Virginia at an undisclosed location. I moved here from Massachusetts 10 years ago to escape the liberalism and corruption.

Thanks for the comments. BTW, Barry J. Mitchel, how do you like the conservatism and corruption where you now live? (Everyplace has some sort of corruption!) :)

Thought-provoking article and thought-provoking parody, Melanie. But why no verse on why Tsarnaev's wife and other family members declined to bury him?

John: good point. However, the OS has only four verses.

Actually, from what I read, the uncle paid for the burial.
