Daily Electric

Dressed daily in electric light, I’m a yellow jacket
Don’t pull the plug, but I just might—
It keeps me static—
Get rectified and quit this racket

I woke up late but I’ve got two strong legs for running
Chased midnight into the afternoon
It’s been a long time coming
Gearing up and counting down to something

We climb down on the hook and hang together
A coronation and the whole town shook
But we just shivered
Lift the ground and fly off into the river

My crown broke through the shell, now I’m a free electron
Swinging on a flying trapeze
It looks so easy
Electrifying, death-defying
I dropped the crutch and kept on standing
