The Goddamn Kaiser – 1

*************************************************************

The Mother

Wilhelm walked into her sitting room. His face was expressionless.

“Hello Mother, you look well this morning. I have decided there will be no post mortem performed on Papa. Your English doctor’s misdiagnosis killed him. That is an indisputable fact. We do not need to carve up his corpse to ascertain that.”

He spoke without raising his voice, without gesturing.

“Papa will have a state funeral. As much as he was your husband and my father, he belonged to Germany first. You may have another private service afterwards for just family afterwards, but he was Kaiser of Germany and a war hero. The nation must be allowed to show its respect. “
