Scared of Electricity
Society makes fun of me:
I choose, in actuality,
a powerless simplicity.
I’m scared of electricity…
My mind is filled with woes and thoughts
Of zapping static snaps and shots,
and fears of zips and zangs and zots
of generated gigawatts.
I’m horrified that every volt
will fry me in a blinding jolt,
and so I’ve chosen to revolt
from life that needs a lightning bolt.
No batteries, no shocking spark,
afraid of each electric arc,
I live unlighted, bleak, and stark,
but I’m delighted with the dark.
