Waxing poetic over a waxed tyrant

"Serendipity" is the art of accidental luck, of unexpected and unpredictable good consequences of circumstances. I used it earlier this week to describe our "accidental president," who did a better job than expected.

And now, the conversion of Saddam Hussein from ex-dictator to pinata has inspired Meryl Yourish and a veritable host of her readers to write haiku celebrating his passing, a case of Saddam going "from bad to verse."

As well as entertaining, they provide many wonderful examples of just why it was such a good thing that he ended up as guest of honor at a necktie party.
