Chivs86 Poetry: The Tower of Babel

Updated on January 25, 2013


Chivs86 Poetry -

The Tower of Babel

Angels will fly & Devils used to...

They built up to the skies,
past the Moon
with Human tools on the table
and there was the Tower of Babel.

Or so the Bible says...

that when every man of earth united
our God was frightened,
and felt threatened
by the ladder
that led up to the Heavens.

And So to make sure it never did -
the land that we had where we lived
was separated.
Atlantis sunk
and we learnt languages

We changed in pigment
and in time became all different.
So In the myth that was written
the moral is if every man on earth living...

Lost our hate for the love
It would seal our gates shut
from the great above,
if Aliens come,
and we couldn't fight
because we put down our guns

Than our days on earth would be up
The main reason why god had the tower crushed.


Original Idea/ Inspiration.

I first heard about the bible story 'The Tower of Babel' whilst watching the Superman spin off 'Smallville'. That was maybe a couple years ago and to be honest I wrote this poem recently and I would say my main inspiration for it was a line out of the Ed Sheeran song 'A Team'.
The story of my poem though is from the perspective of the growing unification of the human race, a parallel to the story in the bible, in a modern day sense. With the tower meaning diminished language barriers and world peace, I write in a sense that in this motion the human race would then be vulnerable to outside attack. This is something I believe in the future will become more true, not so much the invasion part, but more so the dip in the communication borders and the dangers from the unknown increasing in our unification.
