On reading in the NYT that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s name may have been spelled wrong and thus missed the no fly list

C 2010 Edgylit

Mr. Abdul\baluchi\shoebomb\in\gucci
You’re denied a visa
Ms. Fayez\bin\quetta\burqa\fatale\feta
You’ll have to go back to make pizza

If your last name’s six syllables or more than twelve letters
You’ll have to be go home or be shackled in fetters

Your name is too long for the no-fly list
And besides our experts cannot spell terra/wrist

They don’t know whether it’s Usama or Osama
The tea party birthers still spell it Obama
So let’s do away with this never-ending drama

If your name is too long, kitty litter
You’ll have to commit suicide on Twitter
