Titled Goose Game. In which the goose is made a life peer and terrorises the House of Lords.

We have so many Echo devices in our house that we’ve just voldemorted her name.

FWIW, they're _Alone_, _Sorry_, and _Without Me_ by Halsey, _Creep_ by Radiohead (and many covers), _Panic Room_ by Au/Ra, _Better Far to Live and Die_ from Pirates of Penzance (Kevin Kline's version for preference), _Major Tom_ (Shiny Toy Guns' cover), _Almost Human_ by Voltaire, and _Code Monkey_ by Jonathan Coulton.
