    I am the King
    You are My Queen
    Before us there our slaves
    At our sides the princes and bishops
    The towering castles shelter us all
    We all then cry for the denied freedom
    Ah... that is my kingdom's Thirst

    If the enemies wanted tO invade the temple
    Worry not at all my beautiful queen
    Honest slaves will offer their blood for us
    Brave knights will capture them all
    Holy bishops will bless us to eternity
    And the strong castles remain stand

    If something went wrong
    And all my people were gone
    And the castles broke down
    Sorry my only queen
    The battle is all yours to gain
    For a kingdom is not a kingdom
    Until it has a king

    If the foes cut your breath my queen
    I guess I'll see you on the other square end
    But remember this before you leave
    LOVE is not LOVE until it hurts
    And hear me this saying: "I LOVE YOU until the END!"

    But if victory is in you hand
    Honor not me your King
    But the kingdom you are in
    For I only lift you up into heaven.

    Interesting. I never thought of it that way.

    I'd like to show this poem to a chess history buff whose tag here is pofish.

    What might be a poetic significance of the pawn being able to gain a new queen on the last square of the opposing kingdom, I wonder?

    Gladly I exchange my life, lowly pawn
    that I have been, for my beloved queen
    who had fallen far too young in the game,
    far too young, and slain by a wicked knave
    hidden in the battle-thicket—unseen
    by my lady or her king—his sword drawn
    to strike her down from ambush. O the shame!
    And I a pawn with but a wooden stave
    could not move so quick to save her, to lay
    me down my life gladly for one so fair.
    But, as the mightier have died, I stay
    my steady course toward the final square,
    where I yet will yield my life in her stead
    and, by dying, raise my queen from the dead.

    And here comes I, another pawn from hell
    arriving at last at the final square,
    also to sacrifice my life, "for queen and country"
    let the trumpets blare!

    my queen arises! once more from the dead.
    whats this? two queens? how can this be?
    two souls from one? or am i being deceived?
    or has perhaps some jester performed a conjuring trick?

    was hidden there another queen
    in the pieces box?
    or are perhaps we looking
    at some strange time paradox?

    was hidd ...[text shortened]... re another queen
    in the pieces box?

    Wonderful!

    ...and in the pieces box, while still unseen,
    is she alive or dead, Schrödinger’s queen?

    The Kings eyes move now from his Queen
    To the fields in front, deathly serene.
    Far ahead darks swords do rattle
    Today will be a bloody battle

    "Go my friends, take e4!"
    and so pawns march, to die once more.
    Swiftly comes black's grim response
    "Quick you fools!, e5 at once!!"

    Cavalry race forwards from their ranks
    and stop dark knights from taking the flanks
    Black bishops dance and grin with mirth
    as they summon demons to scorch the earth

    White bishops call their gods of wonder
    The skies now boom with flash and thunder
    The queen rides forth with all her powers
    The king takes refuge in his towers

    All his forces in position
    He contemplates his next decision
    Black minions charge, e4's overrun
    Swords start clashing, war has begun!

    As fighting is waged across his lands
    The king has yet to dirty his hands
    and when chaos dies he grabs his arrows
    Black's dark master will see the gallows.

    A gruesome death black does deserve
    The king calls up his last reserve
    This pair of pawns, two loyal friends
    will march off blindly to their ends

    Black's master directs his ashen horses
    They are all that remain of his evil forces
    But they cannot prevent white's pawn suicide
    and it is reborn as a queen, the reaper lied!
