A Poetic Peaceful Diplomatic Game For Beginners

Playing a game on a checkered board No need for armor and sword Only a decisive mind Thoughtful strategy and enough time Concentrating with a stare Capturing pieces without a care Characters used straight out from mid evil books A knight making hops and hooks There is a castle that is called a rook Without a ‘c’ they watch from the tower having a good look Funny the Queen moves are filled with power While the King limited probably a coward There is a spiritual artistic depiction Going forward is its only restriction Always challenging ending up in an invisible tangle Bishops slide along on a mystical angle Finally there is the little pawn First one to move on the battlefield lawn Slowly stepping down then line Clearing the path allowing the power to shine If the mission was a success Royals find out and are impressed Getting to the other side A commoner is promoted since they tried Having this new position on attack Puts fear in the enemy King and makes him pack Then ends falling into a trap Surrendering before taking a nap Hearing two words ‘check mate’ A friendly message not having any hate Using these figures at their finger tips Could be a nice way to say ‘get a grip’ Has war been around this long? Doing things basically that is wrong Fighting battles for no reason at all Watching neighbors and former friends fall Centuries long ago they socialized with a game called chess Soothing an angry attitude presenting a mess Human emotions have not changed Tempers still have that maturity range Maybe we should talk about competitive aggression released in sporting peace Giving life a new lease Not counting the deceased
