  John Saunders: This must be one of the few games that has inspired a poem. It appeared in 'Dragon' [Bulletin of the Cambridge University Chess Club], Vol. 15, No. 44 in January 1974, and was penned by IM Bill Hartston, in the style of a well-known poem by Lewis Carroll:

You are old, Father Rellstab,
The young Miles said,
And your moves are exceedingly odd,
First you play passively, then you jump out,
And take all my pieces, you sod.

The original was accompanied by two line drawings: the first showing a smug youth in clear expectation of beating a hooded Father Time (with a scythe over his shoulder and a sandclock at his feet). The second shows the tables turned: an animated Father Time springing into action and about to scythe the terrified youth's head off.

( 21...f5 ). Mile's looked rattled
after allowing that, rather
impulsively playing 23...d4.
