"How To": Found Poem in Googlet Form

I typed "how to" into the search box, and before I could even complete the phrase, the following are the drop down suggestions that dear Google, conscience of the people, retrieved. I call this found poem "how to":
how to

how to vote

hot to register to vote

how to tie a tie

how to make

how to make slime

Yikes, I can feel that tie tightening around my & our necks. (Tie...get it? Except it wasn't! Popular vote...) Geesh, is this slime around my our knees, the earth rising up in revolt? This poem is in a form I call a googlet, based on dropdown suggestions generated by a starting phrase typed into Google. I guess the people's metaphorical genius is far greater than mine.
