30/30 Day 16: Sun and Shade

Photo Cred: Tom Woodruff Photography

The day is sunny
And DC is still taxed
While the Mayor parades
Pageantry and circumstances dire
In the district
Where we are somewhere between
Ugly riches and polished poverty
We celebrate the freedom
To gather on stolen land
And DC is still taxed
Territory — citizens without a voice
Represented by shadows
A shaded city
Deserving of so much more.
