What Kind of People are Chess Players?
T'is all a chequer board of nights and days...
...where Destiny with men for pieces plays...
I've never met one in the flesh. They play by internet.
But let me say they
are a quiet lot, play in silence, then withdraw, no pay,
no pack drill, gone like the wind, whilst I either win
or lose, or draw, with no-one to applaud. Or ruminate.
