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

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
