Checkmate

Written by: Joseph May

  His army was poised for the kill
 This victory would give him such a thrill
 But a shocking defeat did await
  As the Queen took his knight for checkmate!

 
 Victory goes to the player
  who makes the next to last mistake
  So in any game you undertake
  Make sure you move with care 
  Or the agony of defeat you'll have to bear
  
" Victory goes to the player who makes the next to last mistake"
