Berliner Mauer, 2017

today at checkpoint charlie
mcdonald’s spies from
the american side
at the kfc across the road
but the soviets have become
just another bit of kitsch
for die neue Kapitalisten
to palm off on the nostalgic
and tourists in trabis
clog traffic on the Lindenstraße
is it only 28 years since the walls
came tumbling down?
