Pawn the Dawn

Darlin, I don’t mean to
Be a distraction
(Actually I want to be
The greatest distraction
You’ve ever had in your life!)
I know what you do
Is important
It’s just that you
Make rockets flare
Across my southern skies
And the red glare
Is burning somewhere
Other than between my eyes
So get your act together
And whiz your gizmo
Over to my house
We’ll play strip chess
My queen takes your king
We’ll bash the Bishop
Then play the knight away
Till we can pawn the dawn.
And kiss and checkmate
While we rock the castle all day
