Momo Challenge

Be careful who your child friends
On What's app or other digital platforms-
Momo may pop up in Peppa Pig,
Fortnite or You-Tube
With dubious challenges.

It isn't a character spawned 
From a satanic cyber realm-
Doubtlessly promoted by teenagers,
Or sad figures attached to their computers
Wanting a laugh.

Cyber bullying and stealing has also cropped up,
But crank up digital safety awareness
And wipe the pesky thing out!
