Writing poetry can be hard work.
Even writing poetry that doesn't rhyme can be hard work.
But it doesn't have to be.
Why go to all the effort of coming up with just the right words and images for a poem, when the Internet can do it for you?
Today I wrote a poem using Google Instant -- where you start typing in the search box and Google tries to predict what you're searching for by giving several options in the dropdown.
I looked out at the falling rain and started typing the words "It is raining" -- then I realized I could compose an entire poem by entering 2 or 3 words and letting Google finish each line for me. I hope you enjoy this poem as much as I enjoyed
It is raining tacos;
the sun has got his hat on.
As I look out over this magnificent vista,
I just feel like dancing.
The trees are about to show us
the sky is falling.
Maybe today is not my day.
Maybe tomorrow will be better.
I think I should buy a boat,
but I don't know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs --
so I guess the driveway will be the end of the road.
Thank you for all you do.
