 On a chess board during a game of chess

The white queen had made a mess

And in order to save the black king

The castles decided to do castling

The white queen was forced to retreat

And now it was white that was close to defeat

In just one move the odds had shifted

The pressure on the black king had lifted

Looking at this raging war

All this cruelty I abhor

because real life is exactly the same

Just like a chess board,a cruel mind game

Now the game took an interesting turn

Raging fire on both sides burn

Both were coreced to protect the queen

Against the threat that was yet to be seen

The kings had some false security

As the queens fought with enmity

and just as white was about to win

The tabels again took a swing

Both the queens were killed in the blood bath

None could save white from black's wrath

and now the white king had no where to run

The end had finally begun

Life is like a chess game to me

Each with his own unique strategy

You may be a white queen or a black pawn

But once the game's over all is gone

All the pieces have their role to play

When on the chess board they all stay

But once the game is done and gone

No one cares if you were a king or a pawn
