I bashed a couple of Welsh forms together for this, and took a couple of poetic liberties, so if it clangs, that's why.

I stood, Berlin's Wall, years ago

Iron guards, death strips, mines in rows
Slow death throes before end game
For some, just a lost line in time
Accepted memorial to crime
That chained climb to freedom’s flame


Tempers, rude words always cause
Urge to set steel jaws, close ways
Within old fear's radius

E pluribus unum blaze


Hadrian piled martyred stone

Against hope, he’d hold islands owned

Wide rock, limestone roads’ long reach

Rome tried to ride out Caesar’s rale

Mortared curtain could not curtail

Gray rampart’s veil was breached


Granite borders at last failed

Princes quailed, empires caught

Fell in holy razor wire

Fast bled tired from vain wars fought


Hushed whispers flee across dark sands

Eagle’s tears, insistent demands

Reprimands for wrongs long claimed

Made uneasy by angered minds

Justice that casts rights far behind

New fences, blind lash at blame
