The Wall -- a Challenge poem

The wall; 
a dream? (a prayer?)

I had a dream last night
President Reagan came
He came to me and said
Donny, tear down that wall

It worked with the Commies
I'll make it work with you
Tear down that wall, or ..
Or go scooting down

Down into the bowels 
Into the bowels of Hell
I've visited there, it's
No place to be.  Your choice

It worked with the Commies
Had better work with you.
Please I said, could I just,  
Send a Tweet and see what

No Tweets for you, no more
Gorbachev, he had none
To neighbors you've done harm
Irreparable harm

Said Mr. Regan then
To you by God I'm sent,
Mind His will or be burned.
First I'll tweet, this is rigged

This is a dream, you're dead.
It's not a dream, I'm sent
Dead yes, a dozen years
No Tweets, no dream, goodbye

Aaah aah aah ah aah
I'm going dow o own!!!
Goodbye my friend, goodbye
Too many times, no more

Wow, Jim. This is inspired! I love how it reads like a conversation. Or more like commands and interrupted whining. Exactly right! :)

Alas it goes in circles.. and I wonder how long it takes that a wall works both ways.

LOL, within all these serious warnings just had a good giggle here
"Please I said, could I just,
Send a Tweet and see what"

Much love...

I'm squirming a bit as I don't think the walls are comparable, really... But... I do regret the popularity of tweeting... and your poem does a good job with the topic by applying a bit of humor

one can only hope Herr Drumpf is visited by conscious. Unlikely, though ~

It is provocation better dealt with more tactfully. It is exploitation and bullying using the strength of wealth. Hopefully better judgement prevails!
