I Sing The Body Electric

I sing the body electric
said el ocho patas

as he stuck his finger
into the light socket

you could see
his skeleton light up

and his hair
stood straight up

like wire
so he pulled his finger out

and then
stuck it back in

he sang the body electric
until the city

cut off his utilities
as is bound to happen

in a just
and free society
