Google Poetics – I did a pooglem

It’s Monday, peeps. And this Monday is going to be a lesson in making up poems. Might I suggest the excellent tool of slackers everywhere, Google, for this exercise?

Simply decide on a word or short phrase. Have you got it? Here’s some inspiration if need be. Now, open up Google. Type in that word, but do not hit enter. What comes up will be your four-line Google poem, or ‘Pooglem’ as I’ve decided they should be called.

Enjoy messing around with the search engine until you decide that it really is despicable that you’re using Google to help you make profound statements about whatever it is you have typed in the box.  Open your notebook and resume scribbling.
