Picking Up in a Second Language

God knocked down the tower of Babel

cause He didn’t want us to get too close to Him

and He scattered us all around the world

to pick up new languages

and thank God

cause I’ve got a job as an English as a Second Language teacher

and if we all spoke the same language

I’d have to get a real job.

      Dankon. Supposedly it means ‘thank you’ in Esperanto. I’m a fan of a language that tries to bring the world together, but, as an English speaking Canadian, I’m too lazy to support a language like Esperanto. And have you been watching the Olympics? Even the Germans speak English in interviews.
