Edison's Elephant

About what did the recording angels?

that Edison electrocuted an elephant
publicly?

that he murdered a prisoner with electricity
to demonstrate his electric chair...
... he had the voltage wrong and the man's
bones caught on fire

that he charged for what God made free..
even today utility CEO's are
thieves of
democracy
decapitators of mountains as they grab for coal
destroyers of watersheds
producers of acid rain.. turning bitter
the sweet showers of Indra

*********

Now most of the world has repudiated electric chairs
but still in the dungeons of secret CIA, IDF, and other
prisons, as well as the cells of prisons, tasers,
miniaturized electric death machines, ahve sent thousands
out of their bodies permanently
