Music: Fugue in B
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|Nicholas looks best
In triumph, swords crossed above his head.
Cantering aslant across the dead,
He rides beyond our eyes pedestrian.
Open-handed, he fills his board with treasure;
Light-hearted, he has a will like steel.
All wish this apparition weren't real.
Still, Nicholas enjoys his complex pleasure.
