The Itsy Bitsy Spy-Hole

The nasty old Al-Qaeda, WTC al-Quaida Attack
they hit us in the snout.
Down came the Towers,
but it will be no rout.
Out came the troops,
and found Saddam Hussein.Saddam Hussein's capture exam
While crafty Bin Laden
He has not been slain.
Terrorist Osama bin-Laden

William's Whimsical Words:

Really, folks, Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11.
