Check mate

She played on my chessboard without strategy,
never wanted winning just a tragedy,
took my Queen and me with her fallacy
playing her dirty rhapsody:

Crying violins from our world’s violence –
who wouldn’t hear it with heart ?
Outraging piano to hope there is change –
who wouldn’t hear it with heart ?
Sweet harp summoning the peace of a harpy –
who wouldn’t hear it with heart ?

The heart is the weakest point to bait,
even a mastermind would have a checkmate.
