My Huge Plan Exploded!

My name is Nimrod. I am the most powerful man in the world. I can do whatever I want and I get away with anything I like. One day I woke up with a huge vision to build a tower that reached to the heavens.
You see, I don't want anyone to worship the real, true God. So I made up a bunch of fake gods, because you can control people better when religion is a big part of their lives. I feel like a GOD!
Whenever I make a command, my people jump right in and make it happen. That's how my tower grew and grew and grew, higher and higher and higher. I named my tower. the tower of babel.
God was not too happy about me taking control of the earth and pushing Him away. One day something really weird happened and I couldn't figure out how to make it stop.
Everyone all of the sudden was speaking in different languages. It caused so much confusion that all the work stopped! I couldn't tell anyone what to do because they couldn't understand a word I said!
I was so furious that I stomped, yelled, and screamed all afternoon until dark. This confusion went on and on and on for many days and weeks.
All work stopped on the tower and has not been worked on since. My huge plan exploded on me. I don't think I will ever try to do that again.
The people have divided into groups. Each group has their own language and now they are all traveling to different cities. I don't feel like such a big king anymore, not even like a god… like I deserve to be treated.
I think I'll scream some more. Maybe I will never stop screaming.
