Raúl Castro frees prisoners

The BBC has reported that Acting President of Cuba Raúl Castro has freed four political dissidents held since 2003.

I’d just been reading Randall Monroe’s (xkcd guy) creation, LimerickDB (think Bash.org, but for limericks), and somehow came up with one. (I’d already started reading things in rhyme.)

Havana’s just released dissidents;
Without any major incidents;
Some people did say:
“Cuba gets its way”;
Well, I think it’s just coincidence.

(Coincidence that there’s been no incidents – probably because all four have been flown straight to Madrid, Spain. Interestingly the move was unilateral on the part of Cuba.)
