A game

Post by Chessgirl »

Black and white
A board of squares
A royal enemy
A son spared

A tiny pawn
A hated child
The dark queen mother
Her charming smile

Sacrificed
It’s just a game
Or just a family
With puppets tamed

Don’t pay attention
Or be swayed
These power moves
Are their sick game

I loved the chess theme!
The whole poem to me oozes creativity with almost subtle scathing undertones.
It's good. ;)
