ICH HABE VERSTANDEN
by Lukas Hammerstein
He has been an important man for a very long time. Now, he is quite alone. There always was a big crowd around him: lobbyists, press, groupies, … a crowd overshadowing even his party enemies. But now, it’s time for the hyenas. Even his press secretary has fallen silent.
Before he enters the stage for one last time, a parting politician weighs his words.
He tests his charm and listens to the fading echo of power … his last words will be “I understand.”
