G: Godd evening
This is Mr. Gorbachev-
Are: Hello
Gorby
This is the White House
Ronald Reagan speaking-
G: Hello
My old friend
How are you today?
Are: Fine! It's time for our daily chess-match
Are you ready?
G: Yes
My last move yesterday was the Queen from A6 to B6-

They both send their weapons into space-
Their people's problems they seem to displace-
The arms-race is what they can't negotiate-
Why ain't it chess about what they debate?

What went wrong on the Gulf of Iran?
Why did the Russians invade Afghanistan?
Why not save the money for the armaments

And be chess-partners in the turnament?

Reagan and Gorbachev play chess on T. V.-
The senat is giving a party on the sea-
The nuclear war will forever be banned-
It's only their kings which they have to defend.
