The machine wraps its wiry tentacles around the globe
until all kinds of cables crisscross the Earth's crust
Electricity, cable TV and wireless chemtrails
tarmac cables and phone cables and undersea fiber;

The grid exponentially self-replicates
its high-strung live wires charged with voltage
its coated cables encasing the planet in a net
its ideologues chanting "Power to the People!"

Satellites in the sky oversee the process
of information at highest download speeds
devices exchanging documents codes and data,
entertainment for the lowest common denominator

The machine has no soul
its grinding wheels turn incessantly
Its faceless fa├žade fixedly indifferent
to all the lives its cables connect
