You’ve heard many songs about them walls
You’ve heard punk and hippie tunes about them walls
What does make this one special
And will make it stand History’s trial ?
Tear down tear down that wall
Most places it’s not even a wall
You won’t see people climb and then fall
But why do you think it’s called the sniper wall
From the killer’s own avowal ?
[exercpt from Mahmoud Darwich’s poetry]
Tear down tear down THAT wall
