Asking for Trouble

My son told me about a song called Dance Monkey

That was all the rage in Bangkok

So I asked Alexa to play it

And then I could not get the music out of my head.

I was mesmerized.

I laid in bed and heard it in my dreams

Listened to the song all day and

Let dust collect on the tabletops.

I hummed and sang along and tapped my feet until

My husband became so worried that

He told Alexa to play

Frank Sinatra.

I now understand that

You can’t be too careful about what you ask Alexa.

She has all the tunes.
