EAST III, a three-part poem written by Rich at Spillwords.com



written by: Rich



A Gay parade at The Brandenburg Gate
With Seventy seven reasons to stop the hate
77 countries where their coupling is banned
Their wish like Ireland to make a stand

Driving down Unter den linden
Heading for Kurfurstendam
Sun shining bright
As we drive from the light
But beyond the wall not nice at all
Storm clouds on yonder
As black as night

Small piece of graffiti on poitsdammer platze
Checkpoint Charlie ain’t now all that
A GI, a Russian on their separate sides
Forever a reminder of the divide
A presence there but just for show
Only presents to buy with the tourist euro

To The Stadion of the five rings
Where you can still hear Jessie Owens sing
