Pawn Pushes to King Four

by

Travis Burba

Pawn pushes to King Four
Knight gallops to post
Bishop surveys floor
Supporting center foremost

Knight gallops to post
Clearing space between Rook and King
Supporting center foremost
Creating option of castleing

Clearing space between Rook and King
Bishop and Knight advance
Creating option of castleing
White has well balenced stance

Bishop and Knight advance
Giving way to the Queen
White has well balenced stance
For a plan has been seen

Giving way to the Queen
Knight starts attack
For a plan has been seen
And black must react

White starts attack
With unexpected move
Black must react
To White's fast paced groove

With unexpected move
Middle game ensues
To white's fast paced groove
Black becomes confused

Middle game ensues
White sacrifices Knight
Black becomes confused
The king searches for light

White sacrifices knight
Forseen, was blacks fate
The king searches for light
Black can't escape checkmate

Forseen was blacks fate
long, long, before
Black couldn't escape checkmate
After pawn pushed to King four
