Facts Of Chess


Some fellows think that chess is for warring
Some think it's for intellectual fellows
Of two fellows aiming at each other's crown
In sixty four squares of black and white
In sixty four squares of eight ranks and files
Opening repertoires are personified
Philidor defense, RĂ©ti attack and
The Samisch variation are few to mention
Great Kasparov, Great Karpov, Great Korchnoi
Zugzwang, forks, en passant and gambits
Awkward words and lame terminologies
All make the friends of chess growing
And there will always be fishes whenever fishermen
Are ready to fish in the pond of chess.
Chess! The game of gentlemen and women
Many household names; many inventors
Many making their living online, offline
Many derailing and making chess a gambling
See them in gambrel at the chess abattoir
Their hyperbolic hopes are dangling for chess goodies
They kept their sweet lives in such horrid mess
Whatever a person's wish, chess will grant it;
It can make you a waif or prince or princess
If you seek my definition of chess:
Chess is the channel to meeting great men.
