A game of chess

Since the beginning of dawn
It has always been the pawn
Who dies at the front
While facing the brunt
Of a king’s pep talk

And the horse and its hooves
Makes the most moves
But only sometimes finds glory
In a legendary story
That’s passed down the ages

The bishop and the rook
Play by the book
And despite their strength
They go to great length
To avoid any leap of faith

So perhaps now we can guess
Why in the history of chess
It is accepted and seen fit
That it’s the 'Queen’s Gambit'
Which opens a world of possibilities...

Inspired by Avi's post - Gambit's pawn on AKN
