The Battle Begins

The battle begins with an assault on the hill Our men respond knowing my will The white warriors continue their drill as before My men are confident to the core I order attack on the right white flank The whites maintain their tightened rank Generals continue to deploy the men Since the White attack, this general must defend My right bank archers saw the chance Neutralized the left bank Archers in confidence The trench warriors were stopped in their tracks This stalemate will eventually end on the flanks The White General moved to his right Surrounded by warriors ready to fight A squad of tanks guarded his side The Master General needed to hide My main power entered the fray The enemy King cornered in the bay The battle continued action to action General to General, Grant and Jackson Both sides fought to the end The White warriors had to defend I saw the opportunity to be great My final maneuver delivered Checkmate! A Chess Poem
