The world comes today to a screeching halt
All I can say is, it's not my fault!
I tried to run a search on Google this morning
And to my shock and horror, received a dire warning:

"Cannot display this page" - that's what my browser said
Is it possible? Is it true? Is Google quite dead?
No matter how much I click, weep and rage,
Google just will not appear on my page.

The world comes today to a screeching halt
All I can say is, it's not my fault.

No, Google isn't dead. I was on it this morning. Sounds to me like you've got connection problems.... :-P

This is why I rarely use Google. :-P

I read the poem and, out of curiosity, decided to try a Google search myself. I got the same response. I never would have noticed if it hadn't been for the poem, but knowing I didn't have access to Google was really very bothersome. Thankfully, it's all better now.

ha! Thanks for the comment...it's nice to know I'm not crazy (well, I suppose that's up for debate...)

...and it's also nice that the world started turning again. :D

I guess you should have a back up search engine...
