I’m still in Cascais

Waiting to go home to my house in Algarve

30 years since the Berlin wall came down with the help

Of Russia let us not forget this.

In the meantime, many more walls have been built

Mainly in Israel, a program on the TV didn’t mention this

We don’t like to say anything upsetting.

The wall between me and my house is called old age

When it comes down no one wants to cross it.

The Chinese wall is a tourist attraction, no China

Is building a silk- road instead of covering the whole world.

There are many unseen walls between people, classes

Poor or rich, and between you and me.

The hope is that abstract walls will come down

The rest is steel and concrete suitable for building houses

Ah Yes - the Berlin Wall - kept a shard of thick glass from the debris of it quite some years ago - long since been binned - and yes - memories of the black market cash exchangers too - and the Volkspolitz - whatever next I ask? 😕

Break break break, the walls of narrow domestic walls....rise rise rise, above cultural walls.
