#125 … considering shrinking worlds …


Small-minded places shrink, or so Yorick has observed.

Jesters never rule … but could they?  Jokers (a different type) wise-crack bits and baubles of snideness capturing a fear-filled popular audience.  The shrunken world fits into smaller and smaller trinkets; fit for a joker’s self-amazement.

Yorick considers the devaluing of free laughter a smallness, not the  humor of jesters.
