You aim for achieving societal domination

And to improve your social situation

Engaging yourself with philosophy

Seeing patterns others just can’t see

Your thoughts create a concrete plan of action

And you sit back with growing satisfaction

As life’s chess game continues to progress

And you won’t be satisfied until you’re the best

You make your moves with brazen confidence

As you achieve your just due just recompense

I’m impressed with your sophisticated strategy

As you manipulate other mortals-just like me

But I fear in your game I was only a pawn

Still, I watch with admiration as the game plays on
