Another Day - Another Game of Chess

Sat 
down 
     to the battle last night 
pieces lined up on 
    the board 
   White vs.  Black 
   First game  - 
I 
   tried 
         an 
unusual opening 
   and triumphed 
In the next battle  I
went
down 
to
defeat 
   The game can be maddening 
so many different choices 
   like life 
I have heard playing it can prevent Alzheimers 
Hope the hell it does! 
Russians love the game
as do some blacks, Spanish people and yes 
Israelis 
Perhaps I will look at a chess book tonight 
So next time I can trounce my opponent 
   and feel the rush that victory brings

    I hate chess type games and puzzles (unless they are word puzzles) I hope just writing poems helps with alzheimers because I can't stand this boring game!! Checkers, now that is another story hahaha
