The Job Interview

Been practising and thinking a lot lately. One of the results of which you find below, which started with a fatuous attempt to get help from a bot for a product I bought. 'Can it get any worse?' I thought, but then I reckoned that it definitely could.

Job Interview

He said ĎPlease take a seat
We have modern equipment
The top of the bill
Of modern recruitment

Right there on the screen
Is our beautiful bot
[welcome]
She will manage your talk
Tell me, isnít she hot?

People have sex
Using pictures and deepfakes
And we have Vanessa
Who can do so much more.

Iím here for the job
[Can you specify the question]
Iím here for the job
[Can you specify the question]
Iím here for the job
[What do you mean exactly?]
Iím here for the job
[Please choose a topic

[What do you mean I'm a bot? Could you rephrase that question?]
[We are a great business with satisfied customers]

Soon I quit the attempt
Feeling oddly undone
By the answers I got
From this xml hon

Whoís a stiff digit Lady
So annoyingly pretty,
That I almost forgot
Her dimwitted speech

So I asked about life
And tomato sauce
And her favourite tune
To tease out the dross

And if she had a boyfriend
To be warm to her privates
But she kept on repeating
[I do not understand]

Cool guitar, wonderful jazzy chords. The vocals are a wee bit muffled.
What have you been practising? The drums? And thinking a lot about .... music I presume?
I must admit I had to look up the term Fatuous.

@oorlab Ah yes, I forgot to re-activate the filter on the vocal. It has been reactivated now.

Yes, the drums, and guitarish things. And the bass is 3-finger style, and there are bass chords in the song, which begs a bit of practice.

This is brilliant. A spoof about the wonders of technology. There's some musical and lyrical wizardry going on here which I find fascinating. I wouldn't know where to start creating something like this. This doesn't need any critique, it is what it is and it's very well crafted. I thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

Haha! Yes. Well actually, the working title, before I wrote the lyric, was 'spoofed'. I don't know why, it just came up.

The Wizard of Odd, possibly :) I don't feel like a wizard yet, but rather like a wizard's student like Harry Potter. Ooh man, I still have a lot to learn...

But thank you for your comment :)
