Kindred’s Special: Chess– A Poetic Recollection

Twas long ago I learned to play

The game of chess in a rather strange way.

I broke my bones and lay away,

In T-shirt armor sad to say.

My first tournament was by post,

A young lad facing mighty foes!

I had no coach or teacher per se,

A book or two on how to play,

I won all six games in a four-player class C social,

So a wager they made and told me so,

Was who first would spank me,

Albert, Maxwell or Clark my foes!

 One Brig.  Gen. Frank S. Clark,

A gallant warrior to the end,

Was strongest of that trio.

Yes, it was odd the way I learned to play,

In a small rural town,

It was the only way.

To cross swords in battle royal,

That summer long ago not wasted away!

I rejoice today in a blessed way,

The day mom gave me books to read.

Opening a window to joy and happiness!

Learning strategy and tactics–

Of Kings and Queens,

Of Castles, Knights and Bishops too.

Lowly Pawns– united in formation,

Always battle ready to venture forth!
