freestyle sonnet #050: FOURTEEN WEEKS UNTIL THE OMG OMG PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OF 2016

So many shineface (white) avatars demanding
my vote align with their interests, using fear
of apocalypse to cause misunderstanding
of my own well-known homegrown intuition, clear

and not fogged by digital manipulation.
These shineface avatars, often corporate but
in quirky offbeat style post-gentrification
of internet, quick to stab conscience with "BUT WHAT

OF THE POORS LACKING YOUR PRIVILEGE?" - like y'all know
me. You are no saviour, not of the non-you poors,
or browns, or black-and-white binaries - you are show,
you are neon sign brand posturing which implores

passersby to be branded for your benefit;
"lesser of two evils" me - I don't give a shit.
