The Game of Chess


Playing a game of chess
I must confess
that it's a test of man strength
at a turn of a wrench
it will have you speaking in french
thinking you can bet
your man with your defense
If you don't bring your a game
you will go down in shame
while the next man
claim fame
from your weakness
in thinking
you are a picture
for the next man
put in a frame
Be careful of how you push your pieces
youcould be checked
by a rook and queen
that make you a drag queen
mated senseless
for not using your brain
Playing chess is like
playing russia roulette
with your life
take the advise
and move with precise
Life is a game
just like playing chess
do your best in judgment
or fail like others

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
