Chess Poem 07: John Glenn Beat Me At Ten - Poem by Kim Barney

This is John Glenn.
Not the astronaut,
but the chess player.
He defeated me in
round one of the Southern
Idaho Open Chess
Tournament.

I set a cool trap for him,
but he refused to fall in.

When the chess game was done
I had lost and John had won.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The Southern Idaho Open Chess Tournament was held at the Best Western Hotel in Twin Falls on 14 November 2015.

18 November 2015

The title comes from the fact that it was only about ten o'clock in the morning when I resigned. The round started at nine.
