The Tower – for day 23 of napowrimo

23 Apr
Night. Darkest black
Reflecting evil in men’s hearts
On the high pedestal
On which they’d set themselves
Two men, dressed in garish clothes
Slap each other’s backs
How they’d risen from the dust
How they’d left the earth behind
To be in reach of God

Suddenly, the sky is rent
A bolt of electricity
Sears through the clouds
The tower is struck
The men are thrown
From the very top, their clothes aflame
And how they fall
And how they fall
And how they fall
All the way to the rocks below
Where their bodies and souls are dashed
Into a million pieces.
