Please feel free to add a chess limerick!
Here is one i made for my niece:
There was a little girl who played chess
Whose skills, in it, were a terrible mess.
She played with a master,
Which ended in disaster.
After that, to a game, she seldom said yes!
A master in chess I would like to be
but not playing chess its not hard to see
this dream of mine will stay a dream
but silly as it may seem
I still want to become a master

this opening, i just adore,
when i play as black.
but oh would i crack,
if ever white is my color.
I don't really like your limerick (particularly the word choice), but I do like that the last line rhymes with the first 2 lines (unlike the other one).
your chess limericks are bad,
annoying, depressing, sad,
and reading them makes me mad.
I've posted these in another thread somewhere, but I like them so what the hell, they can go in here as well
There once was a wily tactician
Who got into a winning position.
But then he said "Sh*te,
I've blundered a knight!
I think I need extra tuition."
A grandmaster wrinkled and frail
Was playing a well-endowed female.
While sneaking a look
He blundered his rook
His features went horribly pale.
