A New Vague


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

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
