Sing It, Willie

Every time we come for him,
He slips away, [he's mighty thin.]
Then he goes and makes a tape
About his latest, best escape,
So that everybody knows.
And so his legend grows.

All the Pakistanis say:
"We could have had him any day."
They only let him get away
Out of kindness, I suppose.

William's Whimsical Words:

Isn't this the dude who did 9-11 to us?
