Revision:

Wall-falls with Syrup

This wall is crumbling into my tea.
Some got into my cake batter as well....

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!!

I'm giving myself one more day, but honestly, I don't think much will be said.

Okay for the new poerty contest I have a haiku.

Washed in Time

They fell from lead rounds,
shedding their blood for country.
Now they fall to time.

I'm usually bad with syllables so I might be off, but the syllable counter I used said it was correct.

Decoration of Decay

Here I, decaying,
Sit decorated, waiting;
Death shrouds the triumph.

The Berlin wall crumbling into tea and cake batter? Sounds like the English or American-stereotyped English just finds the wall an inconvenience to wall-free tea and cake. The juxtaposition of famous words and not so serious words doesn't really highlight either, though.

"Welcome!" the man said
"Come get a cookie!" he said
Then it fell apart

The thing made me cry
I haven't slept in two weeks
Now I sit and drink

I can't drink them gone
I suppose I should redeem
My poor, lost cookie

I really don't see the crumbling of walls here, but judging from your other post, you should probably self-indulge yourself on your own time.

Over

Decorated, done.
Time, waiting to take control.
And I'm here- Over.

Sorry... I haven't done poetry in a while, I kinda suck.
