Checkmate


The chessboard is a playground,
full of little black and white men.
Beating each other down.
For the GRAND PRIZE…
Is a snicker bar.
Staring their opponents down with thieving,
darting eyes.
striking each other down.
with brazen hands shouting.
At each other, fists flaying.
Damn those Knights with,
their fire swords glaring at the black,
squares, drowning in sorrow for their,
fallen comrades.
