Can I kill you Again, Mr. Hitler?

It’s funny; weird actually. When I close my eyes, I am with Hitler. But when I open, he is gone. So, excited, nervous, I keep them closed.

‘Hello, Mr. Hitler!’

He is smoking, smiling, but face is signature withdrawn. ‘Who are you?’

I start thinking, but he is ready for more, ‘Are you British?’

‘No.’

‘Russian?’

‘No.’

‘American?’

‘No.’

He turns to consult his aide; there is none.

‘We had fallen off the map.’

‘New enemy?’

‘Can I kill you again, Mr. Hitler?’

He laughs. ‘But I am a loser, already dead.’
