Checkmate, parlous state
Playing games, no rebate
Trying moves, pulling strokes
Checkmate, making jokes
Cruel puns, not shared laughter
Scoring points couldn’t be dafter
Checkmate trust revoked, poor trait
Checkmate learning to hate, is it all too late?
Reset the game, change the rules
Checkmate in life could be for fools
Checkmate put in context
Relationship rebate, delete the contest.
