Google And Translation

Rating: 5.0

My students adore Google so much.
They take it for magic or Midas' touch
I show them how it translates,
And beg to follow my dictates.
But alas! This falls on deaf ears,
And fails to conquer their inner fears.
If Google does all work for them,
Can Google act or think for them?
So funny follies, so many mistakes
In their names that Google makes.

What more than this can I really say?

If Google does all work for them, Can Google act or think for them? Of course NOT, SIR! Students stay students, they learn from us The Lecturers, that's why they are called STUDENTS, SIR. You created a magnificent piem about that cardinal point.
