Here's a little doodle, 
I drew my self. 
 
I see a chess board, 
And every piece, 
I'm afraid to move. 
 
If I'm going to play the game, 
I must place my name. 
 
Am I a king, a queen? 
well, I did sing: 
A rook, pawn, bishop, 
I’m a knight, 
That sounds right. 
 
Every move, 
It makes me want to faint, 
Is this a trait or mental illness state? 
 
Now I'll fall, 
But, 
If I control my destiny, 
I can't stall. 
 
Checkmate! 
I'll take a prostitute at this rate. 
 
In the end, 
It doesn't matter, 
If you're sane or plane, 
Just that you played the game.
