A House of Masks

A House of Masks


There once was a house of masks. A million people worked inside it.


Entering the house, one had to put a mask on, and when exiting, one had to put the mask back on the hanger.


One night there was an earthquake, and all the masks fell and got mixed up.


But for many workers the mask had long been imprinted on their face.


Those people found their masks with ease and got to work.


The rest became excited and ran away. 


Victor Krotov
