Jubilation! Jubilation? (a rant NOT suitable for soccer fans)

Joy, o wondrous spark divine,

Daughter of Elysium,
Drunk with fire now we enter,
Heavenly one, your holy shrine.
Your magic powers join again
What fashion strictly did divide;
Brotherhood unites all men

Where your gentle wing's spread wide

People are cheering and screaming!  Jubilation in the streets! 

Has world peace broken out?

Has the last starving child been fed?

Has the cure for cancer or HIV been found?

Has contact been made with benevolent aliens?

Has a source of limitless clean and safe energy been found?

Have all the homeless, hungry, sick, and lonely been comforted?

Nope. Everything is just the way it was before 
except ...
Germany has won the soccer world cup.

Will there still be a reason to celebrate tomorrow?
