Life moments depicted through the game of chess
Today I watched a man play chess
Pawns fallen, not his queen
Armed with moves aplenty
His success was all but seen

Like two players on one side
The man showed indecision
The Queen unmoved and dormant
She prevented each collision

Today I watched a man play chess
His opponent sure seemed beat
Armed with self assurance
He made his sure win, sure deplete

Like an ornamental scarecrow
The queen remains alone
Forgotten her importance
The opponent sets the tone

Today I watched a man play chess
Then I watched him lose
Lonely queen of Defeated king
No longer his to use
