Red City High Rise

Gaze upon these glowing high-rises at night
and behold the red towers of the Matrix

Where the machines harvest lifeblood
from unknowing humans
blissfully plugged into “reality” services
and digital Metaverses

Witness the energy waves
cobwebbing up-and-down
as humans enjoin
the Machine’s cortex

The only reprieve is the Big Top Circus
where denizens of the Matrix
pay to see freaks
flipping up-and-down

Step right up, view the freaks and savages!
witness what it’s like to be alive

Just for a few hours though
soon you must return
to your tower
for maximum energy-harvesting is near

The time has grown late
now fall back and relax
into your red glowing pod
and sleep
