Negotiation

You flash e4, I play e6.
You flick d4, I play e6.
You flank c4, I play e6.
Your knight f3, my pawn e6.
Your knight c3, my pawn e6.
You do your thing, I do e6.
Completely yours, the center stretch.
I’ll kick in Dutch or kiss in French.
I’ll breakthrough when you least defend,
And have the center in the end,
Or, cramp in under your attack:
No matter what, I’m playing Black.
It’s you who have a point to prove.
It’s up to you to make a move.
