Captain Cur

Rookie - 267 Points (England)

2 To The 5th Power


Peripheral battle lines
are secretly drawn
resetting, directing
wine breathed pawns.

Mathematically strategized goals.
Sentinels call out moves and hours.
Foot soldiers advance toward
opposing sides 2 to the 4th power.

Alternating flag flown
on white and dark tower.
Quartered unmanned horses
roam 2 to the 5th power.

Royalty safely guarded and hid
behind rock walls tiered flowers.
Domination of linear spaced
cubic grid 2 to the 6th power.

Coveted royal crowns
and squares delicately paced
by clerics cloned and robed
bound on diagonal straights.

Ranks one through eight
attacking in combination.
Bishop skewer,
Knight fork,
Castle pin,
Queen sacrifice,

Checkmate!

Forces resignation.

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.

To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
