A New Vague - Poem by Mason Maestro

Have you been to the grid?
Have you walked with the said?
There's a smart new gauge that’s easily read
The figures don't lie, they access it with ease
Turn off your air-con and get it done when they please

Have you heard of the takeover bid?
Have you stood your ground on the swap?
A new vague clarity runs non-stop
In this land of tyranny the compassion is gone
Yet we ignore what is plain and we keep pushing on
We keep pushing on…

This is just a whole new vague
Written for the masses who can see there’s a plague
Like ants in a colony we do our share
But there’re so many larger insects out there
And this is just a whole new vague

Have you visited the quagmire?
Have you strolled in the pit?
The parties lobbied and the real politic
The party-line never different, the rhetoric the same
But we concede so no-one else to blame
No-one else to blame...

10 small appliances on a domain
5 home electronics – all linked on a brain
Overheard and monitored, the objective
Small in vision and perspective
One in five homes run by organized crime
One population soon out of time
