9037 Trojan Defense
[by S. David][art by Michael Cheval]

Ah and noble
For a certainty
His pursuit
Must succeed
His gamesmanship
And he had
Begun the chase
By ensuring she
Knew the rules
Of the game
Though she was
Sweetly coy
Temptingly he
Offered her
A sacrifice you’d
Call it a knight
She knew it
As a horse he
Set it as
A Trojan Horse
The prize for
Success would be
The key she left
To her suite her heart
The belt she wore
To preserve her
Perhaps all three
For was he not
Too a prize
To be gained
In exchange

36§ [Orig 12/23/11]
