The Red Knight

 

The Red Knight

 

Here lies Red Knight –

Sacrificed on behalf of his queen.

A rook he did block, setting himself in between –

All for the sake of three little squares –

His untimely demise, though few were aware –

Led the queen to bring mate to the ebony throne-chair.

Here lies the Red Knight –

His quiet honour – forever shall gleam –

A model to all  – of service extreme.
