King and Queen
The board is set the play is made
Turns the clock on every blade
The battle commences and fighting begins
Until King and Queen are slayed.
The rooks as irons, slide up and down
Side to side to protect the crown
Bishops judge and sideways glide
White and green to cover the side.
Knights victorious one and two
Two and one a trick eschew
Pawns gabble – easy prey
The opening gamble on commencement day.
She sits waiting at the back
The Queen all powerful to spring attack
Her mate tethered beside her throne
The inevitable checkmate all his own.
The Queen rampant with deathly powers
Over the battlefield laced with flowers
Beside her King her image bends
The extent of her kingdom now extends.
