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
