Zapped!

10928smartmeter_spec2After we published Ode to the Toxic Smart Meter last month, we received a number of submissions of other poems related to the smart meter deployment.   Here is one of our favorites, written by Kayley B. of Wisconsin.  There’s something about poetry that can express what prose sometimes struggles with.  Even if you don’t think of yourself as a poet, or even a writer, why not give it a try?

When dealing with entities as unreasonable and inhumane as the modern day utility industry, poetry can be cathartic and therapeutic.

Zapped

By Kayley B.

Waves that burst with magnetic pop,

“no they won’t hurt you” say men at the top,

like the utility board knows what’s best for me,

living alongside radio frequency.

Waterloo, Madison, Baraboo,

all falling into smart meter stew.

 

I can’t see it, hear it, touch it, but I know it’s there,

zapping me, abusing with a pulsing flare.

Most say we have to take them,

boast on how much you’ll save,

after all, what’s another radio wave?

 

Radiation zaps with blackened grin,

industry and city ignore the din,

heart complaints and wheezing lungs,

same old song money’s always sung.

Meters with a brain, think way too much,

waves got a frying kind of Midas’ touch.

 

I can’t see it, hear it, touch it, but I know it’s there,

zapping me, abusing with a pulsing flare.

Most say we have to take them,

boast on how much you’ll save,

after all, what’s another radio wave?

 

If I wanted my house purple would they paint it red?

Shouldn’t I have a say where there are shades of gray?

 

I can’t see it, hear it, touch it, but I know it’s there,

zapping me, abusing with a pulsing flare.

Most say we have to take them,

boast on how much you’ll save,

after all, what’s another radio wave?

 

Radiation’s waves are burning away,

but after all, what’s another radio wave?

After all, what’s another radio wave?

After all, what’s another radio wave?

    Kayley B posesses an amazing talent for poetry. She hit all the talking points of a technical issue and turned it into a political resistance anthem. As difficult as it is to write poetry on this issue, Kayley did it with aplomb.

    “All Gonna Fry”
    —————————————————-
    c) Z, 2010

    Well its 1-2-3…
    just what are we livin’ for ?
    Past time for us to give a damn–
    come outta that WiFry Land.

    And its 4-5-6…
    open up the pearly gates…—
    way past time… to find out why…
    whoopee …we’re all gonna fry.

    So come on all you big strong men…,
    WiFry is a weapon…killin your land…,
    nows the time to find ’em out…,
    and take ’em all out like native scouts—

    way past time…to find out why…
    whoopee we’re all gonna fry.

    And come on all you mother hens…,
    gather ’round here…, think again…,
    all day long your baby chicks…
    in WiFry land …takin’ SERIOUS licks…—

    Way past time…to find out why…
    whoopee we’re all gonna fry.

    Now death is fine…, as life can be…,
    what I’m singin’ about is DEFORMITY…—
    WiFry splinters DNA…,
    assasinates the Mitochondria…,

    way past time…to find out why…,
    whoopee we’re all gonna fry.

    So plug back in those cords and wires…,
    quit burnin’ up the world with poison fires…,
    by the time you see through this for sure…,
    there won’t be much hope for cures…,

    way past time…to find out why…
    whoopee…we’re all gonna fry.

    And its 1-2-3 just what are we livin’ for ?
    Past time for us to give a damn…
    come outta that WiFry Land…,

    And its 4-5-6…
    open up the pearly gates…
    way past time to find out why…
    whoopee we’re all gonna fry…

    B I O L O G I C A L L I F E IS GONNA FRY…,

    and it won’t be P R E T T Y !!!

    • giving people who pay hundreds of dollars to ‘opt out’ a wireless- transmitting ‘trojan horse’ meter that looks like an analog meter (especially SCE)

    then SCE totally lied! they MUST and WILL be sued. this is deception and criminal. we have a trojan horse and SCE claimed it was not. next step, how do we get the validation that they are trojan horses to punish them and take them to the courts. deception, lies and exhortion by SCE.
