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

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

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

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