Check Mate

1 min 208 1 min 208

King, strong and tall, sits in the center

Throne studded with precious stones that glitter

His Queen, perfect in elegance and poise

She, his partner by choice


Kingdom to rule, people to care for

Warrior with strength, loads in store

Protecting his people, world tough and scary

He the Father, always in control, never weary


Sets rules to follow, leads by example

Team to admire – this royal couple

Today – kingdoms and empires extinct

A shrunk world, very closely linked


Kings and Queens, today your parents

Guiding you and helping make amends

Protector, mentor, provider all in one

Blessings for every challenge to be won


Chessboard the world checked all thru

Black and White blocks much newer

Game of Thrones, each one at play

Out to kill, wonder who will eventually stay


Intelligence the tool, claim to victory

Each one struggling to write their own story

While one wins another loses – Check Mate

Fate changes from Date to Date.
