Also I'm not sure why have I asked Greg instead of George :(!

Is there any link or something?

"Morality" refers to doing good (as opposed to evil.)  XIV is the number 14 in Roman numerals.  George has chess poetry series of which this is the 14th edition.

Variantists, from T.R. Dawson to Betza to Gilman to Winther, must be like Vladimir Nabokov's gods and goddesses ''there they were, aloof and mute, playing a game of Worlds, promoting Pawns to ivory Unicorns and ebon Fauns'' in this one's third lead-in 'Pale Fire'.
