towers of babel

TOWERS OF BABEL 

Rise up yee towers of Babel
Reach high
Grab the sky

The triumph of capitalism
A box of glass

Up to the heights of glory
Earned or stolen
These manifestations of machismo reach

A sign of progress are they
A spot where the rules
Of fair play have few adherents

The drive for success and attainment 
Is marked by multi-storied phalluses 
Invading the sky 

Rise up yee towers of trade
Fling your grapple high
Let it soar
And cling to the maker’s domain
On high

Up to him you go
Let him see all
You can do
And now know
