Humpty Dumpty Germans

My Way News reports:
Nearly a quarter of western Germans and 12 percent of easterners want the Berlin Wall back -- more than 15 years after the fall of the barrier that split Germany during the Cold War, according to a new survey.

The results of the poll, published Saturday, reflected die-hard animosities over high reunification costs lowering western standards of living and economic turmoil in the east.
I don't doubt that reunification has required many Germans to confront reality in ways they would have preferred to avoid. Doggerel time:
Germany once had a great wall,
But the wall itself had a great fall,
And now the socialists
And their kin
Want the wall back up again.
