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
                               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
