    This one was quite interesting in that white has several promising first moves, but black can seem to thwart them all.
    1.Qa2 threatening both Qc4# and Qd5# can be met with ...e2+ and ...Be6 stopping white from mating on the third move.
    1.Qc2 threatening both Qd3# or Qe4# can be met with ...Be6 and with e2+ again forestalls mate.
    1.Qe2 threatening both Qd3# and Qc4# is met by ...Bb5 and again e2+ prevents mate by the 3rd move.
    1.Qh1 threatening both Qe4# and Qd5# black has Bc6 and e2+.

    However white can first play 1.Ke1! and now black has no way to pass and keep an eye on all those defences. Eg if 1...Bxe8 Qe2 and black can no longer play ...Bxf5 and stop the mate threats. Likewise 1.Ke1 Bxf5 2.Qe2 mating. If black instead passes with the other bishop, Eg 1.Ke1 Bxa3 2.Qc2 and now white also threatens mate on c3. The threats cannot all be met.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    One piece here is extremely important. Try to figure out why
