Overheard at Table 2: DC Breach by Dead Kandinskys

Last year, MR wrote the poem "DC Breach" in response to the January 6 insurrection.

This year, the Dead Kandinskys set the poem to music ("The discordant chords of riot" as they call it).  

NOTE: the video was found on YouTube and the original link is referenced in the description.  While the length is perfect, the images do not track exactly with the poem.  MR recalls that, on the evening of Jan 6, after the sun had set, several news outlets showed live feeds of quiet streets of Washington DC.  An eerie calm.  Why were the insurrectionists allowed to walk around?  Wander about?  Strangely though, as the Dead Kandsinsky went to make this video, they could not locate footage of those media outlets from that night.  Perhaps they didn't look hard enough, but hey, everything is supposed to be at your fingertips with Google, right?
