P A W N... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

You have honored their rules,
Harnessed their dreams,
You 've always looked past
Their scrupulous schemes.

But now it is ''You''
Who will join the many
As target and pawn
For their extra penny.

They are out of moves,
It is time to choose
You are far too clever
To be clipped and severed

By Kings and Queens
Of avaricious means.
It is time to fight
Like a worthy Knight.

It's a dirty game
Kings and Queens with no shame!
Will you stop and play?
Will you walk away?

There are open doors,
The chessboard is yours!
Don't balk or belate
Time To Checkmate!
