Chess Story - Stefan Zweig, Joel Rotenberg, Peter Gay 'Chess Story' or 'Royal Game'
Matters not, it is the same
Of monomanic Czech champ
And survivor of death camp
Playing a simple game o' chess
To discover who's best.
But much deeper than that
(I've made 't sound flat).
It's richest psychology
Of cryptic Doktor B--:
The price of isolation
And resulting chess fixation.
What cruelty brought, sees
Long 'ffects of th' Nazis.
