Cut the Cord

In the midst of blazing heat
concrete bruises tender feet
as unwashed masses loudly bleat
cut off from the metered teat.

Stymied without constant flow
helpless sans that vibrant glow
grounded with nowhere to go—
snip that humming cord and grow!

Yes, it’s time to finally wean,
tap resources much more clean
forget the era of machine
kill this growing sloth obscene.

My power was out the whole afternoon Saturday! :(

I love Styx.

I figured that out after I commented! When the power is out it forces us to think about how much we need it doesn't it?
