World’s Tallest Building Opens in Dubai

One question comes to mind.

This building finished in Dubai
Is many dozen stories high–
So high that it could terrify
A pilot flying in the sky,
So high that those who want to die
Can jump from upper floors and try
To prove that people cannot fly
But can enjoy a long goodbye,
So high that there is no supply
Of higher buildings, far or nigh.
Dubai, though I so hate to pry,
Why build a building quite that high?

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
