The Tower of Babel

by Nigel Daring

Well did they build,
Pushing hard to the sky,
Not inviting God in,
Letting their egos fly

They pursued their dream,
Greatness fattening their pride,
Leveling ground for the scheme,
Devouring nature far and wide

They did construct assiduously,
Mortar upon brick, brick upon brick,
Not realizing anything without God,
Must be something sick

Their heads swelled with design,
Their hearts cranked up in glory,
As they saw the edifice emerging,
Some wonder of ancient history

They left agonized by wasted labor,
Walking away in confusion,
Having learned a lesson
An ego without God is an illusion
