  The Berlin Wall came crashing down
The Iron Curtain too has been melted down
For a while unified brotherhood stood proud and tall
While hatred and rancor seemed doomed for a fall.
But impenetrable, impregnable, offensive partitions
Continue to split mankind into distinct sections.
Fanatical bigotry forges the bricks and stones
Concretizes humanity even as it squirms and groans.

Imbecile pride, cultural divides, distinctions of caste and creed,
Religious barriers, regional factions, differences of race and breed
Ethnic cleansing, apartheid, mass genocides all combine
To hold the world to ransom; to rupture man's kinship divine
We must walk the bridge of friendship with footfalls of understanding
Scale the ladder of acceptance and reach out in mutual bonding
We may yet build a peaceful world without recourse to arms
If we let our conflicts mellow in love's appeasing charms.
