What does it mean to have power?
Is it a trip? Or a switch flip?
Pick your poison; it doesn't matter.
It boggles the mind to shatter.
All concepts of time and space,
to have the power to erase.
Everything into a black hole of doubt,
turning what is inside, out.
Take for example, the Higgs boson,
the "God particle" of physics chosen.
To be the source of the Big Bang,
creating every ying and alter yang.
Or the boss in your neighborhood,
power for evil, or power for good?
Money has power, so they say.
Give them a pittance, keep them in sway.
The power to lead, but not control.
The freedom to prosper, or take the dole.
But my power problem comes down to this,
when the power goes out, I get pissed.
My computers don't work, batteries go dead.
No heat and AC is something I dread.
My life is balanced on the electrical wire,
without power in it, light the funeral pyre.
At least then, I'll be warm.
