Berlin Wall limericks

As well as the on-the-day news story limerick I just posted, I also put one up on Twitter from the book, but of course I had to tweak it quite considerably to fit 140 characters. I think it may even be improved:

Before:
There was a big wall in Berlin
That was built to keep East Germans in
While the state crushed subversion
Through fear and coercion
And stored suspect smells in a tin.

After:
There was a big wall in Berlin
Erected to keep Ossis in
As the state crushed subversion
Thru fear & coercion
& held suspect smells in a tin

And of course, the book is still available for Christmas 2014!! http://www.amazon.com/There-Was-Geezer-Called-Caesar/dp/1907554866/ref=pd_sxp_f_pt
