A Google Tragedy

I have googled myself. Face it, we all google ourselves. It's become a basic part of our semi-voyeuristic society. However, my latest googling ended in sadness. I will now relate that terrible experience to you. In a loose form of hyperlink iambic pentameter. You can follow my trail, and if you dare, Delve into the depths of dark and despair. There are two "Eric V.s" for us to see, One is a winner; and one isn't me. The other, you'll note, is a jolly bloke From the suburbs of the Sunflower State. As a Melvern man, he needn't have joked That he lived the small town life, and first rate. While the googler himself was in Law School, Other Vogeler was hocked up to his upsy. He owed creditors cash, banks thought him a fool So he filed Chapter Seven Bankruptcy. Then I swear it true, this man saved his face, Won grace...and the Kansas Super Lotto!!! What a miracle! A doppelganger Success nonpareil. He won it...but...wait... Before Eric Vogeler could think to blink, The vicious attorneys pounced, and he sank. The court took his cash, his winnings, his pride. And now, the google excitement, has died. I sit softly now, behind the wide screen And wonder how this just isn't right. To google is fun, but what does it mean When you lose out, in Law School or life?

This was so much better than reading my required article on Alexander the Great's Deification. Thank you.

The first "Law School" link is genius. Utter genius.
