Beat the Berlin


 “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev,  tear down this wall”.
I'm here at  Brandenburger Tor Not Ronald Reagan
But a traveller who came so far.

I want to climb Fernsehturm -the Telespargel
Relishing the Currywurst at Telecafe with left hand
Swishing away my wisps with the right
Spanning the Berlin from 368 metres of height
Resplendent Berlin is in my sight.

The Berlin wall carrying the graceful Graffiti
Stands still as the testimony to the division
Want to walk through the Checkpoint Charlie
Saying the story of the Unified Germany.

I yearn to swim in the lakes of Berlin
Sipping the cocktail at one such beach
Go for boating in the clear water so deep
Resting in the lap of Mother Nature green.

Digging into Kurfürstendamm avenue
Shopping full into the bags till I drop
KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens) will fill
my remaining bags with the gourmet licks.

Posing for four shots in Berlin’s Photoautomaten
Will serve as brilliant souvenir in black and white
Seizing my amazing time in the city
I'll pose for my posterity.

Partying 24-hours in the city of 48-hours
Moving to the music in Farbfenseher.

I'll not miss the  Salon Zur housing the party vibes
An adventure playground, with a labyrinth underground.

I wish to watch a movie at Friedrichshain Open Air Cinema
Starting from sunset into the dark
Moving next to hear the Berlin Philharmonic

At the iconic yellow building.

I long to attend the Festival of Lights
In october when Berlin will transform
Into city of lights where squares will be dazzling
With the colourful light projections each night.

Hioy'oy Hoi Polloi
