Jukebox

Make your selection.
put in a quarter,
I might sing.
What would you like:
Country, pop, rock.
Any situation, I am prepared.
make me a jukebox.
need a genius—
I’ll spit out math facts.
need a socialize—
I’ll pour the champagne.
need your kid back—
Sorry. Out of order.
I forgot how to be that.
Pull out the plug:
the music stops—abrupt
the light fades—abrupt.
There goes the genius, socialize, and kid
More importantly, your jukebox is dead.
