The Day We Stormed the Capitol 

The day we stormed the capitol
I was out among the trees
I saw the weavers weave their web
I heard the vultures screech

I heard we won not one but both
Yet I learned we also lost
Our peaches thus cut much the same
And greater is the cost

The day we stormed the capitol
I did not see you there
Nor saw you me, of that I'm sure
E'en though we both were there

E'en though we think we're us-not-them
Our hands still cast our stones
They pile up and topple down
And mingle with our bones

Today we storm our capitol
And will till we're in tune
Is the world too much with both of us?
At this rate it will be. Soon
