ACROSS THE BATTLEFIELD

Hiding behind fellow pawns,
Bashing bishops,
Capturing queens,
Killing kings.

Across the battlefield,
Across the battlefield,
What a cacophony,
Such a noise.

The pawn has reached promotion,
All hail the queen!
Oh no the black bishop is dead!
There is some wrestling in D4 and D5,
Uh oh the white queen is dead,
Poor thing,
At the wrong place at the wrong time!

Tick Tock, Tick Tock,
The chess clock,
Check, Check,
Checkmate!
