Walls

Imagine the waste

of space and time

when every border

is secured by a wall.

 

Two hundred penal colonies,

islands of mistrust,

where cigarettes trade for phone time

on monitored calls.

 

Imagine the waste

of human potential

when a connection

must climb a wall

to find its partner.

 

Tears shed and sweat pored

on the path to comraderie,

elixir for our weary souls.
