The Chessmaster

We are privileged to live in the time of Barack Obama, the greatest Chessmaster of all time, a man who looks so many moves ahead he is already playing the end game while his opponents are considering the move king’s pawn to king 4.

From Karpov to Capablanca
From Teheran to Casablanca
There’s a Sunni Shia fissure
That’s too wide for Bobby Fischer
But Obama’s on his game now
Putting lesser minds to shame now
With his black knights fast advancing
And his bishops nimbly dancing
Center files his rooks controlling
And his sec of state cajoling
The queen strikes and the trap sprang
But it’s just another zugzwang
