"Mission Accomplished"
-- by Horatio Algeranon

Mission Accomplished, the oil's all gone
Eighty-six days was not that long.

The oil impacts were overstated
The predicted "disaster" evaporated

Corexit dispersant saved the day
Kept the surface oil at bay.

The "Oil Pie" is mostly eaten
Microbe-devoured and weather-beaten

The "Great Unknowns" are very small,
If they're really even there at all.

The seafood's safe and water's fine
If you eat first, we'll also dine.
