Life is like a chess game,
It's full of strategy.
You have to know the rules
To make a serious play.

The art is in the planning
A route that you perceive,
Will lead to stark reality
And not to make believe!

The game can be exciting
The way that life should be:
A crafty move can put you
In a lot of jeopardy:

It's sometimes better to retreat,
Give a little ground,
Than battle on against the odds,
For ‘wanting' you'll be found!

Timing's all important
To gain the upper hand:
You'll end up being Master,
Wouldn't that be Grand!!!
