Guido's Humorous Laughter
How could a father tell his son
that seeing people boarding
trains and sleeping in bunker
beds was only a silly game?
I'm sure, he never meant to lie!
And that innocent child
went along having fun;
his dad told him to behave,
promising him a large tank.
Guido's humorous laughter
was the mask he wore
to shield him from terror.
Not thinking his dad would be shot,
he smiled when soldiers took him away.
The war ended, he got a ride in a tank!
