Of Chess and Life

Another old poem. This is a short one from a couple years ago. It’s a bit edgy, but I like it.

Of Chess and Life:

Oh how comforting and peaceful

To be enslaved by the dance

While pondering the next move

Within its’ world entranced

Heated with passion

Ruthlessly cold

In defensive fashion

Aggressively bold

Predicting in vain

How your plans will unfold

Ridiculous pleasure

Agony untold
