He once sat at a chessboard,
And the pieces were all white,
Except for the king,
A black piece it was,
Having unsatisfactory actions and might,
And He was displeased with it so.
Up and down and all around
He did search for the king's foe,
But no where could He find a piece
As white as all the rest.
So He went to the man
Who made the black piece,
And said, "Fetch me a white king –
I do not like the black."
So this man went abroad
And soon came upon
What he thought to be a white king.
He brought back his find –
A shepherd pawn boy, and said,
"Here is he in body and mind
Whom You sent me in search of –
Is this truly he?"
He nodded his acceptance,
Anointing pawn king.
And the black piece, in battle's stance,
By Fate's own strings,
A shepherd in his stead.
