Inverted Pyramidic Logic - or Upside Down Thinking

The following was written in response to a Poetic Aside prompt the form involves lines that move in descending order of consequence....although I'm not truly sure this form lends itself to poetry where each line and in those rare and wonderful cases each word lends meaning to the whole.  Nevertheless.... here went nothing...
(If not obvious the following poem was meant to reflect an "upside" logic to feelings about the history of the Jewish people)

Jews rule the world financially
turn the wheel historically
testaments, inexplicably, majestically high
carrying, laying, building
thronged slaved workers toil and die
hand wrought joined by others
one by one
brick in the hot desert sun
