Futile

I need a new TV stand
So I searched for one on Google,
Deciding in advance that I
Would splurge and not be frugal.

I bounced from site to site before
I found one so ideal,
In every way it fit the bill – 
Too perfect to be real.

My gut reaction was the truth, 
My quest to no avail;   
Though it was beyond compare,
It just wasn’t up for sale.

See, a craftsman who’s a novice
With a talent for design
Did construct just what I wanted,
But it’s his instead of mine.

It was posted on the website
Of a woodwork magazine,
Which the Google team decided
Should appear upon my screen.

Oh, to find and lose an item
So much better than the rest
Means that now I’ll have to settle
For what’s clearly second best.
