Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s poem about Osama bin Laden

Elisabeth Hasselbeck wears many hats. In addition to being the “View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg likes to argue with, Hasselbeck is a published author, former reality star, wife and mother. Can she add poet to the list?

When the ladies of “The View” were discussing the death of Osama bin Laden yesterday, Hasselbeck expressed concerns over what she’d tell her young children about the terrorist’s death — a concern I’d say most parents share. Hasselbeck shared what happened when she picked up a pen and let the feelings flow:

“Osama Bin Laden was a very bad guy/
He hurt many people, don't ask me why/
We shot him in the head and now he is dead/
Now close your eyes and go to bed.”

Not bad, right? Maybe Hasselbeck could release an entire collection of poems that explain controversial events to children.
