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.
