Hi. In Hilda Schiff introduction to her book " Holocaust poetry" she says that this is a " humorous poem" . I really don't understand why she says that. Can anybody explain it to me?

Even without any notes from the poet, we can understand the pathos arising out of the tragic situation in which an old man carrying some books is being kicked by police for no apparent unlawful activity.
