A week ago Twitter user “Captain Video” noticed that Piano Man by Billy Joel has the same meter as the poem ‘Nemesis’ by HP Lovecraft.
Just realizes H.P. Lovecraft's "Nemesis" has the same meter as Billy Joel's "Piano Man." pic.twitter.com/Oty5JxoHWW

Not only did the internet approve of this canny observation (6K likes and counting) but it rallied around to bring this mashup to live. At the time of posting Geek Native has found four different renditions of Nemesis meets Piano Man.
Which is your favourite? I rather like H.P. Joelcraft.
