capitol versus capital…..

The US Capitol dome:

8,909,200 pounds of cast iron

540 rooms

850 doorways

365 steps from basement to dome

Stories of murder, curses, demon cats and statues stepping down to dance minuets at midnight

couldn’t fit all of those Capitol capital bits
onto a 6x6 cocktail napkin

the Capitol pulled in the capital columns...
of the third JBTC

Wonder if JBTC the third has any capital tales
to tell from the Capitol?

it's just embroidery, have fun with it!
