Check Mate!


White ponders,
convinced of his win.
Yet warily he stares,
at Black’s full grin.

His hand hovering,
over ashen Queen.
Doubts swirling,
Just one of sixteen.

A final scan,
reveals his downfall.
Black Knight threatening,
seeming so small.

Thoughts running wild!
What can he do?
Time for a think,
perhaps on the skew.

A solution pops up,
a life line secure.
White rook slides wide,
leaving Black unsure.
