The Lyrics

Ten little Talibans waged war on West´s decline.
One had to catch an early flight and then there were nine.

Nine little Talibans were making bombs quite late.
One blew up himself real good and then there were eight.

Eight little Talibans thought they´d go to heaven.
One just couldn´t wait around and then there were seven.

Seven little Talibans did try some dirty tricks.
One just wasn´t smart enough and then there were six.

Six little Talibans had to hide out in a hive.
One stuck out his head too soon and then there were five.

Five little Talibans climbed out to go to war.
One were spotted right away and then there were four.

Four little Talibans knew that Paradise they´d see.
One didn´t see a handgranade and then there were three.

Three little Talibans were crawling in a row.
One touched a landmine with his beard and then there were two.

Two little Talibans were looking at the sun.
One didn´t see a missile come and then were were just one.

The final little Taliban was fighting all alone.
Unfortunate he found a nuke, and then the world was gone.
This is one of three parody versions I have written based on Agatha Christie´s nursery rhyme "Ten little indians". I once heard the original being performed live and unplugged by a guitarist playing solo. That didn´t work very well (in fact, it sucked) and I doubt it has ever been recorded, but I´m posting my versions here anyway. If nothing else, they could be regarded as a capella versions or something like that. But if the moderator(s) here don´t wanna approve of them as song parodies, and remove these three contributions, so be it. ©

The Taliban approach is clever. You are right to mention that the meter is uneven. If have a take on a similar tune based on the misnomer, 'Indian': One little, two little, three Pakistanis, 4 little, 5 little, 6 Bangladeshis, 7 little, 8 little, 9 Gujaratis, 10 little Indian boys.
