Onslaught at the Louvre: July 22:1400 Hours

how they charge you
marching in regiments
each standard bearer
flag furled aloft
troops mass in behind

approach target from all angles
anticipation warms the air
breaths quicken
your enigmatic smile in their sights now
capture imminent

from all fronts: surrounded
cameras shoot
conquest complete
