We attended a performance
Last Sunday at the Flemington
courthouse in Flemington N.J.
It was a great reenactment
Of “The trial of the century”
The Bruno Richard Hauptman trial
based on original transcripts.
It was the last performance of
a twenty year long-standing
Event. We didn’t want to miss it.
Outside and inside authentic:
The automobiles and clothing,
The loud barking of paperboys
Outside the now famous courthouse
Shouting out the nineteen thirty
five county democrat headlines.
It wasn’t difficult for us
to lose ourselves in this time frame.
