checkmate

affect or effect upon another advice;
what have you done but spoken your beliefs;

who says he’s wise, and who looks the part,
and who is the one who can measure value?

placed in your palm is every honest soul,
but all your devices are all on your own—

yes, you—you are given every chance,
but only games are played with rules—

will you follow the leader or, hide and seek,
or do you live—only—by what you speak?

where-ever, a man is only a man,
when he wins whatever he keeps.
