Live Wire

"Live Wire"  
I am tired of all this proper conduction
Of man and his so called civilized life
Stop give birth to telephone poles
Stop making us get in lines down the road

I don't want to stand up stiff and straight
I don't want to offer you service anymore
If you want me to be electric and useful
Then give me a future that is truly shocking

I deserve to feel real surges of innovation 
The powerful sensations of a free dancer 
Make me one who can break away 
From society and from this force fed life

This is the only life we get, let us be wild
We were meant to be live wires unbounded
Spontaneous examples who cut loose 
Because juices flow by the desires of freedom 

Abandon the company you keep right now
They will take advantage of you all day
Everyday feel the real pulse with me 
Life is a short trip once you become fried

    Its a real skill to convert the 'everyday' into magic, glory and wisdom Karl - I am not a proponent of regulated living ethier - as you allude to in this poetry of emergency, there are too many models and not enough artist - lets make living art unto itself - the second verse is powerful, but be ready for what you wish for - J.A.B. %

    The models seem to be in a vertical log jam, right? Heck, they just make the artists like you and maybe I more special. Keep writing until carpal tunnel sets in!
