Move

  • How shall I move?
    I’m running out of time;
    Shall I move diagonally?
    Or in a straight line.

    Shall I be sneaky?
    Or shall I be kind;
    If I go over there
    I wonder what I’ll find.

    I’m getting really worried
    What if I get it wrong?
    I better hurry up now
    I don’t want to take too long.

    Shall I move early?
    Or shall I move late?
    My bishop just took his queen
    So now I say ...
    CHECKMATE!
