I am just a little pawn here
sitting on this game board called Chess
waiting to be moved, yeah, waiting
wanting to be thrown in that mess
of this game called Chess.
People call me unimportant
some may say expendable
but I respectfully disagree
I prefer dependable
please, don’t call me expendable.
I am the first line of defense
on the front line of attack
marching onward, ever onward,
with the big boys at my back
yeah, I’m the first line of attack.
I may be little but I’m bold
I’m the bravest on the board
without armor or protection
I either wait or move forward
those are my choices on this board.
Just today, my cohort and I
faced down a Bishop and a Rook
I didn’t shirk but stood true
Neither one of us was took
when we met a Bishop and a Rook.
Here’s the lesson of the story:
if you travel with your buddy
then perhaps you’ll be a winner
with a whole lot of bravery
and a strategically placed buddy.
