My point was that the sadness lies in the fact that the world created a Zarqawi 
in the first place.  Yes, he was created, by humans, as others are being 
created right this very moment, and no one cares.  Therein lies the human 
condition, reflected in the demise of its victim-creating-victims which we 
applaud.  I'm boring myself, along with others.  Have a nice weekend.

Well, the rhyme scheme and meter work in the first four 
lines, but when I shifted to direct parody of the munchkin 
song it broke down. This is not too surprising, since the 
lyrics of the munchkin song rely on the music, which is of 
course absent here. Without the music, it doesn't scan, and 
really shouldn't.

As for the part about correspondents applauding -- and these 
are mostly non-American correspondents at the press 
conference -- they did break into loud and spontaneous 
applause. You may be able to catch a repeat of the initial 
announcement on C-Span.

"Zarqawi is eliminated."

[Loud, spontaneous applause.]
