My Grandpa

dad’s brother

had a story

from before the war

~

a guard at the palace

grandpa was a trickster

with a secret habit

~

kaiser’s horse

reckless rides

all the guards

loved him for it

~

the kaiser

was thrown

drills and questions

no answers

~

they all masked

silent smiles

~

Palace Guard
