"The King's been toppled. Toppled!" The queen and court are trembling. Felled by a pawn! A bumpkin knave, his true intent dissembling.
In seeking for himself a crown he trampled several pawns His King's bishop assisting him en route; he hastened on.
He slithered past our bishop,
he lamed our brave knight's steed!
Before the queen could rush him
he'd done the devilish deed.
He crashed against his majesty
and caught the king off guard.
Our monarch being rather plump,
he hit the ground quite hard.
Still the pawn heads for his goal while our good queen and host have vowed to have his wretched head. That upstart will be toast!

Absolutely brilliant Christine! I’ll be thinking of this next time I go to battle with my chess pieces!
