Left, Huh! Right, Hoh!  A hundred voices repeat the rhythm.  Devotees heave ropes taught.  The megalith rocks, it falls, it waddles — its 5-ton balance engineered by masons’ precision.   Darkness comes to the ancient road.  By the bridge, a Moai god waits eternally.

      Thanks. It’s partly based on a true experiment done about the Easter Island stones.

    What a marvel that humans could once do such things. I love this stuff! Now I need to read up on the Easter Island stones.
