Even incomplete, the tower already stands quite lofty.
Yet if it were to ascend even beyond the heavens,
it still could never have the defences to stand against the
though with the world unaware of even its existence,
it may not be necessary.
The grand scale has demanded an increase in the labour
as the sole builder stands looking down,
watching the foundation turn to ruin from neglect.
Morale has been lost to the echoes of silence
and no longer does he have the will to descend.
