Just a piece.

I thought myself the queen

unflinching,

never unnerved

not to be usurped

loyal to the king,

sacrificing lessor

for more time on the board.

I thought you the king,

false bravado,

always hiding or on the run

never to be outdone

content in pomp

a man of circumstance.

How sad it was

to be played a pawn.
