They thought I was unaware

of their attempts to toy with me;

But I mastered checkers at five,

and though I don’t play chess [often]

I’ve become quite adept at many of its strategies

and tenets.

No matter the moves made

I’m usually already 7 ahead.

They’ll always either have to

King me

or too belatedly realize I’ve checked their king.

Never anyone’s pawn,

Always my own Queen.

I know my own power

as well I as understand their numerous weaknesses.

So cut my check, mate –

Because though I may not always make

the first move

I always make the last.

My moves never lose, and neither do

their maker;

Unfailing gamechangers, every one.

Small uphill battles and petty skirmishes

passive-aggressive timewasters

designed to tip my hand.

But in the wars of will, strength, intellect, and power

I’m on the front lines

and my hand remains the upper…

Game, set, match –

I always win.
