  WTHarvey: There once was a website named WTHarvey,
Where chess puzzles did daily delay,
The brain-teasers so tough,
They made us all huff and puff,
But solving them brought us great satisfaction today.

There once was a website named WTHarvey
Where chess puzzles were quite aplenty
With knight and rook and pawn
You'll sharpen your brain with a yawn
And become a master of chess entry

There once was a site for chess fun, was the chosen one,
With puzzles galore,
It'll keep you in store,
For hours of brain-teasing, none done.

There once was a website named wtharvey,
Where chess puzzles were posted daily,
You'd solve them with glee,
And in victory,
You'd feel like a true chess prodigy!

  WTHarvey: There once was a chess player keen
He studied each move he had seen
With tactics so clever
His games were a pleasure
His passion for chess was extreme!

There once was a chess player bright
Whose moves were a beautiful sight
He never lost hope
Or his skill, he would mope
For he believed in fighting the good fight.

There once was a chess player so keen
Whose passion for the game was extreme
He'd study and strategize
And often would visualize
His victories, in every daydream.

  fredthebear: I like your puzzles and poems WTH!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WTHarvey: Thank FTB but the poems are ChatGPT's. It's limericks have gotten much better. How about these chess tactics haiku?

Sneaky knight's attack
Double threat, fork in the road
Checkmate is in sight

A skewer in chess,
Piercing through two pieces deep,
A victory's sweep.

Pieces multi-task
Overloaded, can't keep up
Checkmate, game over

Queen takes knight in sight,
Unexpected move in flight,
Zwischenzug takes might.

Thought provoking to say the least. :-) I tried 'Boden's Mate' or 'Cozio's Mate' but it didn't seem to get the idea what pieces were involved.
