King and Queen

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.
