A chess game and I am naught but rook

…..without an evasive move to take

Many other games over which to look

…..yet no prevailing move to make

A chess game played over so many years

…..never having ended holding check

Many pieces captured given through tears

…..many battles waged leaving me weak

A chess game on alternating squares the same

…..moving forward sets me back as well

Many moves for naught the win I cannot claim

…..no piece shall remain as the attacks swell

A chess game ending only in a stalemate

…..neither side will come find victory their prize

Many unfair words of blame become our fate

….. on the board pieces remain reflecting only lies.
