Hubby playing chess

 

 

My hubby is playing chess

together with a hundred men

wiping the sweat

off their brow.

 

Poised for the conquest

white plucks another piece

off the board.

 

Here not even a flash

of my three bare breasts

would arouse

a flicker of interest.

 

Holding my pint

I join the women,

who also watched their chessmen -

briefly, that is.

 

Women failing to understand men:

it s so run of the mill

for us, chummy at the bar
