Soliloquy on Chess

    
    Another game - another struggle 
mind against mind 
    Battle on chess players! 
The multitude in the U.S..
    Doesn't care about chess at all
But a small minority of us 
   Consider the game essential 
Let them play their Scrabble and Go 
We'll set up the pieces 
   and start the
next battle.....

    i think chess is fraudulent...it lacks nothing but wait and see..wait for someone to make a wrong move ..lol. I dont think its for people who are doers only for people who think they are clever but do nothing but wait for a fool to make a mistake
