The grand master

The white knight on a trusty steed
that can leap and jump with ease
and bow and scrape to kings and queens
the white or black pawns born lesbians
or be gay and not be prude
in that advance be misconstrued
taken down by the dirty rook
trapped and couldn't cock a snook
or bishop that has been defrocked
and left exposed by his own flock
soon castled, a defensive move
threaten, and to be repelled
 blood was spilt as the pieces fell
the war it raged between white and black
 casualties in piles were stacked
sacrificed to gain advantage
the innocent just disenchanted
a game plan, the subliminal conceit
no quarter given or received
segregated squares of equal separation
white or black power seek gratification
grand master moves the pieces
locked in checkmate, deaths elitist
