On Farragut Square 

Daylight turns to darkness
and man made lights turn on
along the Avenue 

Admiral Farragut is standing here
as a statue silhouetted high
on a plinth because he sent his fleet forward 
and damning the torpedoes 

It's about this time
fleets of FedEx and UPS trucks double park
around the square damning the traffic
as they load their cargoes 
and sail into the sea of highways
on an evening breeze.
