January 6

January 6

A Poem by Montag

the events at the US Capitol on January 6


January 6



See there, on the scaffold of the Capitol Dome

(which only true patriots may claim as their own)

red-hatted citizens, outraged, aggrieved

trashing the place with a brute joie de vivre  

half on a lark, the rest insurrection

impelled by the myth of a stolen election

seeking redress, simple fairness, solutions

or failing that, a few executions

betrayed and forsaken, without understanding

their knowledge obtained from a YouTuber’s ranting

cunning and feral, no longer ignorable

Hillary was right: they are simply deplorable

Well rhymed piece here. I am 75 and never in my life have I witnessed scenes such as those which occurred on Jan. 6th. I hope never to see them again.
