It's a Pawn's Life


Could life get any more boring
Than one step at a time?
King and queen dance
Forward, backward, diagonal,
But I just keep going forward
Hoping to be something better.
Iíve heard that the other side
Is like a treasure chest:
Reach in
And be what you want to be
Except for King.
Itís okay though.
Iíve never wanted to wear the crown
Or sit on the throneó
I like the wooden chairs just fine,
But I just want to be able to explore
The squares, be free to choose
Which one is mine.
And just once, let me take a step back
When the castle comes streaming by;
Let me fight with the knights,
Let me have prestige like the bishops,
Let me be more
Than just one step at a time.
