Babel

In the heaven of Babel was the birth of a hell
The lost lands of language where giants have fell
Where mis-understandings' are declerations of war
When hate is what love is mistaken for
Mis-interpretation's a weapon without choice
Where armies and enemies don't have a voice
To eachother they scream but nothing is heard 
They plead for peace but there's no common word

Destroying the tower and spreading the speach
Was an angered God with a lesson to teach
Not only for them but for all to come
To remind the human of what pride had done
Then the day came when He was compelled 
To show them a place where secrets were held  
Had the stone been discovered just centuries before
Prevented it might, those centuries of war 
But doubtful it is when today they rage on
A chess board of countries where peace is a pawn 
For power's the king they fight to acquire 
The very same god that created their fire
America the great like Babel the strong
So what place in time does its' fall belong?

An interesting aproach, to say; that lessons not learned, is his--story repeating itself untill the lesson of Love is learned! Sincerely, Love, Moses
