A piece of poetry meant to be read aloud. Enjoy! :)


I'll try to upload an audio recording of this tomorrow, but this online community seemed particularly great for idea collaborations and I thought I'd see what you would think.

Make your move,


You said to me.


It’s your turn


Play the game.


 


I looked at the pieces


Forming my thesis


Wondering which is


The best way to move


 


No matter which way I go


You always seem to know


How to stop my to with your fro


Which way I’ll move.


 


And so, moved the rook


But in a second was took,


You always seem to know


Which way I’ll move.


 


I grin ear to ear


Suppressing the fear


Cause if I don’t know how can you know


Which way I’ll go?


 


Well maybe my knight


Can put up a fight


And then I just might


Make the right move.


 


You make a face,


A pawn takes its place


My knight’s a sacrifice,


It’s not the right move.


 


But there’s no shame,


It’s only a game.


A child’s game board


Making the right move.


 


And they are just pieces


Moving between us


Across the war board,


It’s only a game.


 


 


And then someone moves me


From G2 to F3


Why am I moving?


Who is playing my game?


 


And that’s when I see


The opponent wasn’t me


I was only a piece


Of your little game.
