"Flick Ford / ''90" printed in black at the bottom right of the image.

Poster has black ink printed on white paper. At the top is "The Sprectre / of / Forfeiture" with the first three words in a melted looking typeface and the last word in chains. To the left is "She''s A / Cruel / Mistress". At the bottom is a stylized, scantily clad and masked version of the Statue of Liberty, sitting on her podium using her torch to light a cigarette and holding a whip in her left hand. The tassles on the whip read "Loss Of Property", "Loss Of Possessions" and "Loss Of Personal Rights". To the top right of the woman is a speech bubble reading "Nicotine / And Alcohol / Or Nothing / At All!" At the bottom right, floating in the water, is a "Ship of Fools" with people labeled at liquor, petro, chemical and tobacco companies. At the bottom left, people bow down to the woman, with the grimm reaper standing nearby. Hanging in a cage amidst the people is a "Casual pot smoker" saying "Miss Liberty, / What Happened / To Freedom / Of Choice?"
