Ode to Pawn

Residing on the second rank,

You patiently wait...

Wait to be pushed forward

Only to be left undefended

By my unappreciative eyes...

Pawn, oh royal pawn,

Worthless to a common eye,

But crucial

To my great attacks nigh...

Shift the structure,

Shift the board,

Your chains and breaks

Go unadored...

Yet your physicality

And practicality

Are ever-present

On the checkered board
