Washington D C Epiphany 2021

On Capitol Hill
as the sun began to set
footfall rampaged
on a citadel’s steps.
A narcissist drowning
in a mire of lies
built like castles
in the sand.
On this day of Epiphany
in the darkest hours
his distortion
laid bare.
Honourable men speak
without prejudice –
one country
one destiny.
