Enigma Variations

Dear Editor:

How can a Music Director

So abruptly become a Defector?

He claims to love the School

Yet implies its leader’s a fool?

And then to settle a score

Leaves the Festival flat on the floor?

Is it principle or is it a slight

(Perhaps a perverse delight)

That makes someone run

When the damage is done?

Our past conductor turns out to be


Just another small person,

In more ways than one.

We’ve been had.

So sad.

John Buchanan
