Pawn – (Six Sentence Story #157)

The soul of the Chess board,

The unwitting Pawns

Unique arrangement will prevail or call quits.

In this battle of wits …

Overlook them not.


Unpredictable are

Both Bishops and Knights,

Whilst stoic, Castles merely hold defence lines.

But King’s capture defines …

The end of the game.


The expendable Pawn,

Powerless alone

Can excel when working as a team, that’s keen.

One may well become Queen …

The most potent piece.

(Double Ennead)
