As The Knight Moves


  
Knight to Bishop three
There he will guard the throne
Left, until time calls

pawns at his mercy
Coming down the middle
Rotating angles in an L

Protecting the wall
That surrounds his King
Lures in a Rook for his Queen to snatch

The Black Bishop attacks
Two moves sets him up
The White Knight fights back

Moves to within 3 of his Queen
The Bishop retreats
To hide like a priest in castle walls

Positions lost by force and sacrifice
To build a plan to rule the land
A barrage upon the holy grail ensues

A King left poorly guarded
Stares as the Knight moves
To one away, from checkmate!

  1. Love, love, love this. A right hook of reality with pawns being kept lowercase – as seems to be the way of the game.

      1. Indeed, and depending on the skill of the combatants they are either ended with precision or degenerate into slugging-matches.
        Unfortunately when I play chess, it is the latter!
