War Is Like A Game Of Chess This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   War is like a game of chess.

Our pawns are slowly creeping

into the enemy's nest.

The bishops are bombing

and taking out our rival's rooks.

Saddam Hussein shoots knights,

penetrating Saudi Arabia and Israel.

But some knights don't get that far,

being destroyed by our queen,

the Patriot missile.

Our king, President Bush,

surprises Hussein and decides to just push.

For a while our enemy is dumbfounded,

but then strikes back with some knights,

and holes they have pounded.

Then the war continues,

attack and counterattack.

When we are deep into the war,

the outer shell begins to crack.

Now there are pieces all over the board,

until one side gives up,

and so ends the war.
