Babylons Tower Fell Down
Poem By Tomás Ó Cárthaigh
Babylons tower fell down
After angering god by Heaven trying to reach
And so God toppled the tower
Confused their tongues, a lesson for to teach.
The seeking of perfection was not good
No, the tower was built through pride
It was not built of love, as be it should,
No, but intent hard of heart was inside.
I, the writer, wrote long into night
Verses for which I thought maybe in time have reknown
And lost the disk on which they were stored
And so my Babylonic poetic tower fell down!
