Suitable Image - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Please.
I want everyone's full attention.
This is the only rule to the contest,
That will determine the winner of...
'Suitable Image'.

The first to arrive,
With that 'suitable image'...
Will be guaranteed that image,
To be impressed on the minds forever.

However...
And listen to this very carefully.
This is an open contest.
Anyone found...
To have bound and chained others,
Just to gain an advantage.
Will be disqualified.
If seen...
Doing these misdeeds.
We are not here to enslave anybody.
With a gagging done of them intentionally.

Remember what I have said!
We are not here to enslave anybody.
These acts are not tolerated.
If seen!

Now...
On your mark.
Get ready.
Go.

'There are voices heard coming,
From behind those closed doors.
Are you blinking?
Or is that a wink? '

No one said anything about 'hearing' things.
I said...
If seen.
