Daily Prompt: Underground

Everyone be lifted high,

one hundred Babels line the sky

and Man cannot escape the sound

unless he goes underground


The mogul laughs, the mogul laughs

he knows how people think

he keeps the ashes of language

in an urn above his sink

and the dissenting voices

are nowhere to be found

they have  surrendered, given up

and traveled underground


Many know Saint Augustine

some claim to know him well

Dylan saw him martyred

And Sting saw him in Hell

Who am I apart from You?

His voice echoes around

The question sounds much louder

when it’s spoken underground


Everyone be lifted high

one million Babels stab the sky

but no patrons can be found;

They live,  contented, underground.
