Am I building my Babel?

Am I building my Babel? / Brick upon brick / Constructing an edifice / Of my own achievement.

On a hope deferred. 



 



Am I building my Babel?



Brick upon brick



Constructing an edifice



Of my own achievement.



A monument, a stairway



Ascending by the effort of my own might. 



 



Am I building my Babel?



A ziggurat of articulate,



Profound, impressive thought,



Words are its stones,



Thoughts its mortar,



The materials with which a man



Makes his mark on the universe,



Though veneered with a sparkling



Coat of praise,



A dialect which aggrandises the speaker



And not the Subject. 



 



Am I building my Babel?



Am I building my Babel?



 



Am I building my Babel?



 



Unawares, an effort to reach heaven



Which in truth tries to



Become it’s equal. 



May this tower be decimated.



 



Am I destroying my Babel?



Am I rebuilding Jerusalem?
