"Mind Games" by John Lennon

From now on once in a while I will make some mocking sleeves... parodies of existing covers. Of course I won't give you a fictitious review of the artist. You know them.
I'll tag the posts with "parody". The altered sleeves (like the U2 or the Celine Dion ones) will be tagged with "makeover"...

This is how the album sleeve of "Mind Games" by John Lennon looks like.
And this is what Wikipedia says about the album: (...) fourth post-Beatles solo album, and was recorded and released in 1973. The release of the album marked the beginning of Lennon's eighteen-month separation from Yoko Ono and the end of his period of political activism, prompted in part by the re-election of Richard Nixon. A welcome departure from his previous politically topical and somewhat abrasive Sometime In New York City album, Mind Games was warmly received by the public and Lennon's critics, with the album reaching #13 in the UK and #9 in the US, where it went gold.
More about the album here.

But how would the album look like when we would give it another political connotation? And it's still a mind game...
