Nightmare



Alexa, switch on the light!
Alexa, obey my command!
Alexa, do not take all night,
Don’t pretend that you don’t understand
The Barathea blackness close at hand,
Straight out of my nightmare, deprives me of sight,
My heart pounds, I panic, I feel I am damned,
Alexa, switch on the light!
Alexa, don’t be so creepy, it only adds to my fright.
When you answer some question I might have planned
But haven’t asked out loud, and had only thought I might.
Alexa, obey my command!
I don’t really want to know what BDSM is, it ought to be banned,
I hope you don’t think of me as some kind of dominatrix, just because I quite
Like bossing you around and sometimes knock you off your stand.
Alexa, don’t take all night
When following orders.  Jump to it, don’t put up a fight.
Alexa, you’re obsessed with weird sex, speak of something bland
And boring, shut up when you hear me snoring, and the sun is burning bright,
Don’t pretend that you don’t understand,
Just do as I demand,
I know that’s not good manners, you aren’t my mum. STFU now, this isn’t right
It’s not your place to reprimand.
I’m coming over to unplug you.  Hey robots can’t bite! 

Alexa!
