The Tower of Babel

Ekphrasis poetry

It happened long time ago when there were only

One town

One massive family

One language

The people decided to build up a tower

Long enough to reach the sky

Long enough to reach God

So they lifted heavy stones

And worked all day long

They thought they were smart

And strong


In a split of a second

They became strangers

They didn’t understand each other

From one big family, they turned to

Different streams

They crashed down from the top of the tower

That what happens 

When man makes plans

God  just  laughs 

The End
