Caught in the middle of it all
Barred from my village by this wall
Unity our virtue, given a great fall
Stranger what brought you here?
Don’t cross, so you don’t ere
Boy: Look, and see my scar
They didn’t come cowing around
I’v got my own share on this ground
Tell: Bismarck was here, roaming this wall’s surround.
