можно сказать, что известный рассказ лишь развивает мысль старинного стишка

For want of a nail the shoe was lost,
For want of a shoe the horse was lost,
For want of a horse the rider was lost,
For want of a rider the battle was lost,
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of horseshoe nail,


больше известного в переводе Маршака:

Гвоздь и подкова
Не было гвоздя -
Подкова
Пропала.

Не было подковы -
Лошадь
Захромала.

Лошадь захромала -
Командир
Убит.

Конница разбита -
Армия
Бежит.

Враг вступает в город,
Пленных не щадя,
Оттого, что в кузнице
Не было гвоздя.
