The Game

December 13, 2007
By Trent Bellet, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

The game is started with one move
A simple move the game has begun
the other prepares to to strike
readying their tall black horses and men with pikes
Hard stone faces frozen in determination or fright.
As the army leads in to front
The stratigist stays behind head held in his hands
Calculating the losses if he confronts
Finally he makes a move
sending his soldiers to their doom
The enemy retaliates strong and fast
Making sure his foes plans come to pass
As the stratigists failed and men didnot last
He sent in his heavy artillery stronger but not as fast
Each of his moves are beaten back and back
Soldiers now hes begining to lack
Now with one piece all alone
looking down at his kings white dome
knowing that the king will never make it home
finally surrendering the fight
when his foe yells Checkmate with joy and delight
