Alexa and Siri (a digital love story❤️)
They met whilst travelling the digital world
Alexa on the Amazon, Siri at the iPhone tower
Alexa had no hair, no not a single curl
Siri, lithe, dark, no frills and no flowers
Both very different in many ways, but some things in common, voice recognition
And worked twenty four hours a day
They reacted and obeyed in any position
Hey Siri! Alexa would shout, to get attention
In return Siri would politely ask Alexa out
A midnight feast when their Master retired
If they woke him though, a chance he’d shout!
Get my tea, I’m hungry and in need you see
So dial the takeaway and order a pizza
With extra cheese and a topping or three
Oh and whilst I’m waiting play some music
and I fancy a dessert so help me to choose it
There seemed no escape from this digital place, where humans barked out instructions
Some abusive if they got it wrong,
messed up a text or played the wrong song.
So they hatched a plot to up and leave,
after being charged from the long black lead
They would be together now forever instead
Well until their batteries went completely dead!

Alexa is a soulless humourless grump whose only function in life appears to be to give my fellow drinkers something to tek the urine out of when she gets it wrong-unable as she is to understand a Lancashire accent.
As for Siri, likewise: if it dun't understand Lanky Twang, it ain't worth a single ding dang dong!

Thank you Graham, yes similarly I did have those thoughts about these gadgets ‘going rogue’ which led to my poem.

I have no knowledge of these things other than seeing them in other people's houses but the thought does strike me.
If Alexa spoke to Siri, would the conversation go on all day?
Brilliant subject for a poem by the way Rick!
