Playing Chess

When I was a kid
All I wanted to do
Was decimate my opponents pieces
I took whatever piece whenever
The unfortunate one could be taken
Too bad my dad
Knew strategy
So my aggressive play never worked
I’ve never beaten him
Now I’m a lot older
And only a little smarter
I still like running rough shot on the board
But now I can see a little more of what’s going to happen
So I never lose
Because I only play
My young sons
Who play like I used to
Recklessly, cluelessly
Some day they will beat me,
Some day I’ll beat my dad

Half that statement is correct.
