lyrics

In the park
Before dark
I met two men
Playing chess
Heaven bless
In the shaded glen

And one could see man's future
And one could see his thoughts

Very few
Cared to view
The scene not great
Not a piece
Was released
In this stalemate

For one could see man's future
And one could see his thoughts

How annoying -
A clairvoyant
So each piece held steady
No surprise
In his eyes
For he knew that already

As he could see man's future
His foe could see his thoughts

'Enough' I cried as loudly
As my own lungs were able
'What foolishness!' I uttered
And boldly flipped the table

I looked upon the faces
Of those who I'd disturbed
The right was somewhat piteous
The left was unperturbed

'I knew you'd do that' he exclaimed
And knelt down in the silt
To calmly pick the pieces up
The right just saw my guilt.

Dunno how
Even now
Those two great men
Could like chess
More or less
In the shaded glen

For one could see man's future
And one could see his thoughts
