I almost fainted when I saw my electric bill

the power company smiles when the summer is extra hot and humid

they have us by the nuts and never stop squeezing

and we say o.k. I'll give up some hooch some dinners

at the pretentious diner and pay the blood money

the air conditioners hum continuously

but sometimes it feels as if the universe itself were on the side

of the evil and the unforgiving greedy...

(if God's a Republican, we might as well go to hell...)
