The Wrong Thing

Most times,

I click the wrong link

I thought the wrong think

I drive the wrong way

Long stops on short days

I meet the right person

and can't remember their name

So tell me where to go from here

I'm at a crossroads

Staring like a dumb deer

I roll the dice down

I'm going west now

You made a podcast

I'm so impressed now

I've heard that same song

And I'm obsessed now

It's stuck in my mind

But I like where it's stuck

Cuz it reminds me

If I wanna change my tune

Just click the dial down.

--there are several lines here that I like in particular, that play on words, or play with words

"I thought the wrong think"

"If I want to change my tune just dial down."

And I love the image of being at a crossroads --"So tell me where to go from here" -- "..rolling the dice" -- Must one's path always be so random?
