Onslaught at the Louvre

Onslaught at the Louvre: July 22:1400 Hours
 
how they charge you
       marching in regiments
             each standard bearer
                   flag furled aloft
                         Japanese/German/American
                               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
             flash/flash/flash/flash/flash/flash
                   conquest complete
