(Written for Reena’s Xploration Challenge #291, )
The king is fighting for his board-his reign,
All others, the coterie, except pawns, for power,
Every piece seems so indispensable,
Be it rook, knight, bishop, queen, or the king,
That anyone could be sacrificed for a pawn,
That one piece that moves so simple and straight,
No intriguing movements, one to one ethical,
Always Ready to get sacrificed for king’s sake,
If its side wins, good to be alive,
If its side losses, will do its tit-bit yet again.
Fight with a motive and fighting ethically,
Is important, win is secondary.
Good evening and see you next time.
Guidelines- Welcome back!

There is no restriction on format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap.
Any post that is found to be offensive, vulgar or something that hurts common sensibilities will not be included. This needs to be a safe space.
