The Tower of Babel

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves;
Genesis 11:4

We stacked each other on shoulders
totem-pole style—in an effort
to make our own Tower of Babel.
A few of us ended up breaking
important bones, and one kid
got a concussion; but we were
at least partly successful: we made
quite a name for ourselves
at the hospital downtown.
