Chessboard

I survey the chessboard of life
and see in black and white:

I could do without the castle
that can only go backwards,

and I don’t need the bishop
like he needs his pawns,

but the knight is alone
and I wish I had my queen.

As long as I can move
I will not resign,

So the one I play knows
they sit before the King.
