Tower of Babel

Tower of Babel

We’re poles apart,
we lost the link.
We could have sailed,
instead we sink.

We raise our flags,
and close the door.
Divided sides
prepare for war.

We have no chart
to find the way.
Peace was a pause
in this dark play.

Remember the tower of Babel.
They thought the higher they built the tower,
the closer to heaven they’d be.
As if toppled by a storm of fire,
to its root they lost the key.
But you must admire
the architect’s audacity.

Your broken arm,
your blinded eye,
your Eden song,
your question why.

We started wrong,
could only stray.
We leave behind
what cannot stay.
