A Game of Chess

There’s a game
We’ve engaged
For years and decades

Rookie mistakes
One after another
From our youth till we age
Causing constant confusion

Endless rules
Enforced upon us
Follow – we must
Freedom restricted
Are we but a pawn to grammar rules?

The way we speak
The sounds we hear
Scrutinized thoroughly, for –
The power of Queen
Cannot be ignored

Educators, the
Bishop impersonators
Figure of authority
In classrooms, not churches
Imposing rules
Dissecting speech
How do we escape from this eternal hell?

Do we…
Yearn and wait
For Knights in shining armor?
Not the prince variety
It is savior we want
Save us
Free us
From this unseen chains

All we can do is –
Take one step at a time
Cautious not to commit crime
Just as the King would do

 Every move taken
Thoughts are given
English is undeniably
A game of chess
