I chose to do a poem about The Tower of Babel c.1563 Pieter Brueghel the Elder (1525 - 1569) Flemish, Northern Renaissance

we spoke together,
the whole earth, one language, and the same words.
we worked together,
as one massive herd,
people from the east and people from the west.
we slept together,
like brothers and sisters.
we built together,
to reach the sky.
It went so well
so why God separated us from each other?
