GOOGLE, A simple, poetic tribute

Was there information before google?

What did we ever do before google? I ask myself a similar question about many of the fabulous conveniences we have today. Our cell phones for ongoing communications, microwaves that prepare our food within just minutes and think about the ease of sending documents and photos via Fax!

Was it at least a hundred years ago we marched off to the library to spend hours on research? We delved into books and copied down facts. We may have even consulted with experts and others.

Now we just pull up a chair in front of our computer, the major source for vast volumes of facts and data. We had no idea our fingertips were magical......so let's take a look to see what we might find!

Bzzzzzzzzzz

So many questions.....But I have google!
So many questions.....But I have google!
a-HA!  That's what I'm looking for!
a-HA! That's what I'm looking for!

A Simple Poetic Tribute to the World Wide Web of Information

ASK GOOGLE ANYTHING!!

Who is the guy who wrote, "The Departed?"

The woman who left DiMaggio, brokenhearted?

You know......................................

I wonder about the meaning of life...

Or what is the best way, to sharpen a knife?

Quite honestly..................................

It makes me laugh, when people ask,

What do you put inside of a flask?

How funny it is that no one knows

Why onions have skin & garlic has toes

But seriously.........................

If everyone, everywhere, knew everything

They would not need ask how canaries can sing.

We think we're so smart and show off a lot

But tell me, oh wise one, why is fire so hot?

I see that .......................................

You chuckle when someone says you are dumb

Do you know why one finger is called a thumb?

Gosh, I need to know why sugar is sweet

And how many bones are in our feet

By the way......................

When you look up, do you wonder why

It seems that there is no end to the sky?

The questions are plenty but answers are few

It's a mystery to me, How about you?

Oh me, oh my.....................

Are you tired of wondering all of these things?

Like why we are here and why a Bee stings?

Or................................

Do bears sleep all winter and some birds fly south?

Is there really a Big Foot, does he have a Big Mouth?

May I ask?..............................

Do you want to know how to pitch a tent?

And understand what A word really meant?

Hey, tell me.................................................

If someone is hurt, do you know how to help?

Can you tell the difference between coral and kelp?

I think it's crazy, know what I mean?

That people seek magic to make themselves lean.

I wonder.............................................................

Do you struggle and search for one little word?

You're not the first, or second or third.

I'm grateful for google, what else could we do?

When we need an answer for something that's new.

It's History, Geography, Science and more

The questions are piled from ceiling to floor

The truth is................................................

You think this is funny, my head is a-buzz

Don't laugh please, my friend, I'll tell you because

You must understand, not to chuckle or smirk

It's not cute at all, to show such a quirk

Listen please...................................................

Instead, if you wonder, "What is a bugle?"

For crying out loud....Don't Giggle....Just Google!!

What do you want to know?

There ! See what I mean? A world of answers appears before our eyes. It's never been so easy to bring knowledge into our lives. We've a treasure of learning in one special place.

How can we not love this??

I'm DONE! Thank you, google!

All in a day's googling!!
All in a day's googling!!

How does google rank?

The advice columnist hubs are in my profile list. It's Gabby Van Gibberish. There are 2 of them. She's happily residing at the Rest Home currently One has a picture of her at her computer and the other a cat wearing glasses, reading the newspaper.

All I can say is, "Thank you so much.".....Peace, Paula

How delightful! This is incredible! You really need to publish a collection of your poems and those articles you wrote (I'm sorry I don't remember their names and they aren't' on your profile page because I looked -- where did they go?) where a woman answered questions like Dear Abby. Those were hilarious and so imaginative too. I love them, and this poem, and the last one I read, too. If they've been idled then you need to check the right box so they are listed again.

Voting this up and BAI. Also sharing because everyone needs to read this just to add some brightness to their day! Yes, and pinned to my 'Fun and Interesting Subjects,' board. You are greatly under appreciated on this site.

I'm happy that my google tribute entertains. This is one of those "Fun" poems that could have gone on and on forever.....but maybe my readers will be encouraged to come up with a few more clever lines as they go about their busy days.......and bring a smile to their faces!

These "sing-song" type poems have a tendency to get stuck in our heads like a catchy tune......

So...hey my friend, let your mind go wild

Just free up your clever inner child

working or playing or just sitting still

You'll be thinking in rhymes, I know you will

After a while you'll say, "That's ENOUGH!"

I have work to do...go away silly stuff!

Basically, I'm CLUELESS when it comes to pimping my hubs.

I just write and read & comment and write and read some more......

So, what you're saying is that my silly poem will increase search engine ranking? No one's ever told me that before. I suppose it's a good thing, right? LOL

Lori...Hello and welcome to my HP site....I'm glad you enjoyed my google poem.. If you think these are some silly questions, I guess you've never been to visit "Web Answers!" Now there are some really crazy, bizarre and nonsensical questions!! LOL

Every once in a while I just get the urge to do a silly hub....or funny one....to break up the seriousness.

Laughter is so good for our health!.......Please stop by any time! Peace

lambservant 2 years ago from Pacific Northwest

Fabulous! I use google daily, although I don't ask quite so silly questions. Well, maybe I do. Let's face it. Google saves us a trip to the library. Imagine doing research for articles for HP. We'd get far less done for sure.

Maybe you should also do a piece on Siri. I asked her once what the meaning of life was and she gave me some reference to Nietzi (I know that's spelled wrong). Love your sense of humor.

Had all sorts of nonsense go on here, during our "deep freeze," GF......pipes bursting.......furnace problems.......hot water tank.....blackouts. I now owe the local plumber, my first born son. He CANNOT have him, however, if he'll give me a discount, I do have one son he can "borrow" for a while!.............Take care

I held that title until my husband downloaded google to his cell phone.

Super funny poem!

LOL.....OH, California Boy......How are you? Good to hear from you. I'm sure you have taken notice that I have seriously minimized my "Time," in Hubville. Too many reasons to mention.... But I still do VISIT, when I can.

Google is just like anything we didn't have for half our life.....finally have it.....only to be completely baffled by how the HELL we ever got along in life, without it.

As a die-hard Boomer, I walk around in somewhat of a state of amazement, as well as Amusement (I'm easily amused, of course) every single day. I'm a "simple-life," sort of lady......so I find myself continually thinking, "WOW," when it's all so E-Z, now! Heck, Rick, I still get a thrill, when I get a PHONE CALL where EVER the hell I am! For a long time, I gave up Religion and just worshiped my microwave and computer. To think we can wonder about the most incredibly rare, bizarre, off-the-wall subject, in the kitchen.....and walk to the desk, and discover anything and everything, there is to KNOW about it, just blows my flippin Boomer mind!!! LOL......

Thanks, Rick, but I think I can only pull off a nonsense poem, once in a while......I'm DEFINITELY no "Poetic Fool" or Vincent Moore!!!!


Poetic Fool 3 years ago

What fun, Paula! I wonder what people would do today if Google suddenly disappeared. God forbid we actually have to do some real research for ourselves! This was great fun to read, Paula, very entertaining. I, for one, would sure like to see you write more poems. You've got the talent! Hint! Hint!

You nailed it and your right where the heck would be all be without our doodle Google. I must use it at leas a few times a week if not more.

I love this! How cute this is. You are so clever and this poem is excellent. I wish I could rhyme like you. I just don't seem to have that internal beat. This is so funny, too. I am an everyday googler. In fact, I wouldn't know what to do without it. When I taught, and a student asked a question I didn't have the answer for or didn't know the answer, we just stopped class right there and googled it. Instant answer and usually more discussion on the topic. I know Google is criticized all the time, but I have always loved it and found it so helpful. Great tribute to google.

Oh my lanta this is hilarious! It's funny, I have to admit; I'm guilty as charged. I 'Google' so much I use it as a verb. You know what's really scary? When looking for information on the internet, sometimes the popular answer wins over the correct one! I can't confirm this isn't the case because I haven't read all the fabulous comments, but I'll be surprised if someone didn't attempt to scientifcally explain why fire is so hot! :D

Up and all those blue buttons! SHARING, 'cause I can and I want to!

How wonderful to hear from so many GREAT hub-buddies on the same hub, on a special day. I'm glad you enjoyed my Google Rhyme....

Confession: This one came to me, while paying bills (away from my computer).....I got so frustrated, trying to turn $100 into $500.....I wondered if I could "google" how to do THAT!.....See, I'm whacky even when I'm home alone....I crack myself up. Is this a sign of something seriously bad? I mean, hey guys.....you can tell me....do I have issues or what? Love you all.

So lovely to see you on HP again, Paula. I'm not sure how I missed this one the first time around, but I'm so glad it hit the radar today. A day doesn't go by (unless my computer's "down") that I don't "Google" for info. (When a noun becomes a verb through mass usage, you know it's incredibly popular.)

I remember decades ago how often I phoned the main library's reference librarian for information that I now access online in a moment's time. This is one aspect of technology I happily embrace.

By the way, "Happy Birthday, Paula...Happy Birthday to You!" (You'll have to imagine that being sung.)

Great poem, great hub--Voted Up++++

I was giggling at your "Google" before I put on my goggles to see this quip a little clearer. I had just finished gargling and watching the gaggle of geese go by. LMAO and wishing you the happiest of birthdays too!

I didn't know that whacky, funny, talented and joyful existed in one package (other than my wife) until I googled it and saw your photo! LOL

Again,

Happy Birthday Paula! Happy Birthday!

LMAO....Leslie! You crack me up, girl. I think that spending a day with you, would put me into the ER quickly......from total exhaustion. Sorry to say, I do not drink a drop...had to put it aside with the introduction of a necessary med, that does not mix well with the sauce! LOL.....30 years since my lips have savored a drop. Funny, but I became so accustomed, even the smell now, nauseates me and I wonder how I ever did it....... Hmmm.... sooooo long ago since I "shared a smoke," I don't even recall.

It appears, my dear friend...all we have left as an excuse...is that I am a bit daffy!!! Is that an acceptable excuse? If anyone would know...you would!! LOL

What a clever and humourous poem about the wonders of Google, or the WWW. They thought it a wonder one hundred and forty years ago in Licoln's telegraph room. The great one nearly fellover when told the messages would travel 180,000 miles a sec. Imagine could he get a gander at the G!

LOL very well done, and in a style reminiscent of my mother's poetry. Cute!

I never could get my mom to use a computer, though. She was somehow exceedingly leery, "afraid" that she'd mess something up beyond repair. They made her nervous and fidgety. When I tried to show her even how to play a word game she enjoyed on the computer, she got very visibly uncomfortable, and wanted to go home. She even convinced her bosses (who loved her work) to leave her keep her old "IBM Selectric" typewriter, under threat that she' simply retire early if they forced a word processor onto her....WOW So, she would never have been near enough to a computer TO "Google" anything....

However, I do use it, and often enough, when you simply type in a question, regardless of which browser you're using--it tosses you to Google search anyway....if you specifically WANT Bing or Yahoo search, you have to type them in first.

It may be 'great,' but in a way, I also think they have gotten too big for their britches...

And yes, libraries--I remember using them, reading lots of books, using the reference materials, and even, if you wanted to know "Who is the CEO of XYZ Corporation?" You could call the nice "library lady" on the phone, and they'd look it up for you in Standard and Poor's. Now, S&P online is not a free service... :-( ... ... ...

Voted up, interesting and funny.

How did we ever get through school, Paula, before Google? Oh, yes, I remember. There was this large building with lots and lots of books called a lie-berry.

If we needed to find some information, it took hours and hours to find and sometimes the search was very hairy.

But now we have Google and other engines to search,

So we are never ever left in the lurch.

Thanks for this funny Google tribute. :)
