Hang this!

I couldn’t help seeing a video earlier today of the Taliban using cranes to hang people in public. Good grief! I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like having a “religion” like that. The sight of it nauseated me; and I wanted to paint all of it but the hanging corpse. I figured I’d decide what I was going to substitute for the dead body once I had finished everything else. The poison sign came to mind, so I went with it. I didn’t want to think too much about it. Anything but a dead body. What am I missing?
