having seen your press photo

i shall not laugh
no
i shall
not
laugh
at your attempt
to create
a marketing illusion
to enhance
your
acceptance
of
those
who
would
without remorse
dissect your heart
while
still beating
no
i shall
not
laugh
but
a simple
quiet
chuckle
shouldn’t
deflate
your proposed
ego
in their
miniscule minds

a model marketing campaign…

selling you
all those comic books
in various formats
was
an absolute
stroke of genius
you bought into
every preposterous theme
we presented
the good guy
always wins in the end
the bad guy
will have his day of reckoning
and
our all time favorite
the meek
shall inherit the earth
slogans so embedded
into the fabric of society
that even
we
from time to time
forget that those mottos
are just
part of the operational manual
for your limited existence
on this planet
however
those advertising maxims
have convinced you
that your sons
and daughters
should die
to protect our interest
which we wrap
in a patriotic flag
around billions of dollars
using the appropriate color scheme
of course
painting everything
from our finger nails
to our yachts
to which
you are
indebted
to us
