Berliner Divisions

At a glance (glimpse) 

To the average tourist
the wall is (was) the divide
between east and west
Checkpoint Charlie
the obvious choice
point of reference
almost irreverent
in its poignancy

To see the cultural divisions
needs close obs, more diligence
The guest workers from the east
restless from centuries of abuse
and ethnic cleansing
abrade against western ways 
I hate you, I don't know why
I hate you but I do
surfaces at night and
the policing of this only adds to this
increases the tension 

The Ufer bars, the nightclub
under counter guns and hand outs
of pills that could kill and do your intellect
are all part of this

In a harmonious kind of way
this melds and mashes and makes up
what is Berlin
a very lovable and culturally 
diverse city.
