Googlesearch Poetry?

example of a googlesearch that's a poem
It's like flarf, but different. "'Google Poems' are hauntingly beautiful," says Alexis Kleinman.  The technique is simple: type the beginning into google, and let "autocomplete" finish the poem.  Here's an example:

Everybody is...
Everybody is a genius
everybody is a star
everybody is looking for something
everybody is fine.

How hard could it be?  OK, I'll try it:

How Difficult Could it Be?

How difficult could it be to invent a new life?
how difficult would it be for a person to leave a gang?
how difficult would it be to consume a vegan diet?
how difficult would it be to go on hajj?

If it were easy...
If it were easy, everyone would do it
If it were easy
If It Was Easy, They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon ...
If It Were Easy It'd Be Your Mother
If it were easy, everyone would be doing it
if it were easy it wouldn't be worth doing.
