“No Laughing Matter” / Memorable Fancies #2075

[“To laugh here now is treason.” (Wer hier lacht, macht Verdacht” – Günter Grass]

When the Leader spoke,

I smiled.

I swear it wasn’t a laugh.

I don’t know where that sound came from.

That desperately muffled sound.

That escaped from somewhere.

And could desperately not be called back.
