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

heard while dying…

your request
for clemency
has been
denied
your
death
shall be as painful
as those
you’ve judged
recall
my words
vengeance
is
mine
your death
shall be as painful
as you are
arrogant
keep
smiling though
the camera
serves you well
more than
death
shall

dear registered voter…

the voting commission
regrets to inform you
that your request
for further information
on the candidates
based on the
freedom of  information act
has been denied
the commission
wishes to remind you
that press photos
of each of the candidates
have been provided
admittedly
with some photoshopping
by the respective campaign offices
however
we must remind you
candidates also have rights
revealing their political affiliation
agenda if elected
level of experience governing
or their true idenity
would place the candidates
in jeopardy
and
risk of lost votes
further you
as a member of the voting public
do not have the appropriate
security clearance
for that level of information
therefore
we recommend
that you study carefully
the press photos of the candidates
their family
and pets
and make your selection
as you have done
in the past
