I would call it reflective. The speaker is musing to himself about the pros and cons of building walls. Now that you have an idea what to look for, go for it! I don't know whether this tidbit will help, but it may interest you: Not long after the Berlin Wall was built, Robert Frost went to Russia and did some public readings of his poems. When he read the opening line of "Mending Wall," there was a stony silence. A few months later (January 1963), the day before Frost died, part of the Berlin Wall collapsed, evidently because the ground had frozen under it.
