CHEQUERED LIVES

 

The amorous queen
wanting to mate
pretty much does
what she wants
aided by irreverent
knights, flanked by bishops
pointed in stance
slanted in movement
and rooks trampling
upon disjointed ranks.

Across the board
her husband takes one
timorous step at a time
shielded by pawns
pregnant with dreams
of becoming queens.
