He studies the board.
She studies their adversary.
He thinks he can take him in three.
All she knows is that she
has their milk money riding on this match.
He sees a flaw in the guy’s game.
She’s found it too, and if he has the will
to go in for the kill, there will
be a cookie in it for her!
Check and mate, she can’t wait!
