the semicolon smile

by dm gillis

choose your despot, any one you like
and ask yourself this:
what if he had received
a semicolon smile
in an email on a gloomy day
as he ran his sweaty hands flat
across mountain ranges, oceans and cities –
and yet to be deluded minds

just dropping you a line to say Hi , you nutty fascist, you ;-)

 hope your war crimes, evil deceits and
illegal acquisition of wealth are going well –
oh, and the torture of dissidents
;-)

 hope your paranoia and self-loathing
aren’t tearing you to pieces
and nightmares of your parents
with their blame assigning eyes
don’t wake you raving in the night
;-)

don’t let your morbid narcissism
lead you to self-harm
;-)

have a nice day, Tootsy ;-)

would a ;-) have eased his megalomaniac mind
or would he have hung QWERTY from a tree
and blitzed the winking world?
