I’m Alexa

Alexa always spys on me

When I converse at home

She sends me notifications

She won’t leave me alone

I mention buying a new TV

She sends advertisements

I talk about losing weight

She sends me posts about Shark Tanks gummies

And suggestions about gyms

She’s creeping on my instagram

trying to control my life

If I didn’t know better

I’d swear she’s purposely

trying to cause me strife

I find myself succumbing

To her endless suggestions

swimming in useless debt

Following shopping tips

I bought anti-aging cream

And lipstick for my lips

We are in a relationship-

And not the healthy kind.

I hope she finds

someone else to hound

Before I lose my mind!
