' Tower Of Babel, episode '
by Thaddeus Hutyra

Stunned by what I saw in the Tower of Babel I directed myself to the elevator
Once in there I saw thousands of buttons one could see through
labyrinthine buttons of the Universe, shining with a brilliance
as if they were made of diamonds, the most precious stones
I pressed one of the buttons, a staggering number 10024
disbelieving there could be a floor with this number
although I have seen here the numbers in their hundred of thousands
It didn’t last that long to get to the chosen floor, perhaps a split of seconds
and then the door got open at the speed of light, unnoticeably
I stepped out of the elevator and … found myself in a large gathering room
with the all-American banners, the stars and stripes !
Was I dreaming or was it the fact ?! - I stood a moment completely surprised

But then I began simply to walk among the many tables
and to my new surprising discovery and outright astonishment 
I saw the Founding Fathers of the United States 
John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay 
Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington and Samuel Adams
I saw there John Locke, Thomas Paine, Edgar Allan Poe, many other finest guests
including presently known men and women of superdom, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Sharon Stone, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Depp and Jude Law
Clint Eastwood, Leonardo di Caprio, Julie Roberts en Martin Scorsese
Michael Rubens Bloomberg, the former mayor of NYC
strangely there were even Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson among the guests
and even the president of the United States, Barack Obama
next to former presidents of the USA, Bill Clinton, George Bush and George W. Bush 
so many other known and unknown faces, all fully blown Americans

A good luck wanted I met two great geniuses from the time of American struggle for independence
both James Madison and Thomas Paine talked to each other
holding their great historical works in their hands
that changed the entire course of the modern civilizations, beginning with the USA
James Madison had original manuscripts of the United States Bill of Rights, much of his authorship
and Thomas Paine his book ' Rights of Man ', originally written in support of the French Revolution 
They just gave welcoming hands to me, asked where I am from 
and after hearing I am from Poland they were delighted
to mention the Constitution of the 3 May, 1791 in Poland 
the second modern times constitution after the one cementing the USA in 1789
We had a short chat, friendly and brotherly, they asked me
of I shall ever visit the United States, naturally their beloved nation
and I answered it's my dream and sooner or later I shall come to the land of my dreams
to NYC especially but also to Chicago, San Francisco, many other places
and the culmination will be the toast to freedom in the Statue of Liberty 
Then we bade farewell to each other 'cause their schedule was busy 
and everybody went his own way
I was clearly happy to have met such larger than life personages
but it took a few minutes before I realised I had in my hand
one of the Federalist Papers, obviously gifted to me by James Madison 

In the meantime Barack Obama stood up and went to the podium
He then began his presidential speech, one long in political phrases
demanding concern with what was happening in the Middle East
and as much in the eastern parts of Ukraine, with Puttin tearing the country apart
In both cases there was a need for fast decisions, according to him
The ISIS Caliphate must be destroyed, ‘cause they are brutal terrorists
and what concerns Russia and Ukraine the war must be stopped
Will the sanctions not bring desired results and Putin will continue
with his military support for the rebels in the east of Ukraine
the USA will have no other choice as to supply defensive weapons
to the legitimate government of Ukraine, chosen in the elections

Putin must stop ruining the international order in Europe
Obama went further on in his farsighted speech
- ‘ We shall stand on the side of liberty, no matter what ‘
the US president concluded. - ‘ God bless America ‘ - He added
I imagined something else in a split - second glance, Russia and Ukraine
joining the Transatlantic Pact of the free trade to make the picture whole
and to definitely end all conflicts with Russia: USA-EU-Ukraine-Russia
all the way from San Francisco and Vancouver to Vladivostok in the Far East 
of the Russian Federation. But it was for more people to decide and not only for me
There was a long ovation, people standing up from their chairs
some of them shouting: ‘ Long live America ! Long live liberty !
And then all these was commenced by singing the American anthem

There were plenty of wonderful parties afterwards among the participants 
friendly people asking me to join them, curious of me and my life
but as always in everything I had to say good bye and depart 
promising to visit America, my beloved land, one day
When I was walking to the elevator I heard the bells again in my head
the bells ringing and singing all the liberties America fought for
and the world was desiring so much
Oh, long live America ! Long live freedoms and liberty !
I got into the elevator and pushed on yet another button, and then another button, and another one …
And so my story of grandiose stories continued by visiting great people
from all the corners of the world, just dependable on which button I did press
I have been doing this, pressing the buttons in the elevators for the rest of the day
then at night hours till the very midnight, then the rest of the night
and then, tirelessly, I continued the same throughout the next day splashed by the rays of the Sun
but finally I had enough of emotions which certainly would stay with me for the rest of my life

I decided to leave the Tower of Babel, to leave also the vehicle of time and I was back in the real world
Well, welcome back in the world of hardship, world of desires and ambitions
and of life full of concerns, never ending anxieties, life worth though to live in
One thing is sure about the two worlds I passed through
my real one I am always in and the one in the Tower of Babel, somehow also a real one
both worlds are a yearning to freedoms, love, brotherhood, liberty, no matter what !
Both worlds are in fact one world, just both sides of the coin, for all times to come

May the bells of the world ring the Earthly and the cosmic sounds in our lives 
and defend us from bad things, my Lord !
Ring, ring, ring roaring bells of Earth, resounding bells of life, echoing bells of love
Ring my dear bells, our sweet hearts, dearest to us rumbling hearts, forever !
So help us God, the Lord of all Universes, our Almighty God
