Going to Pieces

A lockdown poem by Joan Shorrock:

Although I don't play chess, don't know a BISHOP from a ROOK.

What could I do to pass the time? I know, I'll cook.

I'm not a Mary Berry, that is another worry.

What am I going to make? A KING PAWN curry.

Whether we're ordinary people in our four walls unseen,

Or in our CASTLES and palaces, just like the QUEEN.

Whoever we are, wherever we live, I miss friends at BCA.

In social life at KNIGHT, or outings by day.

So don't be board or in pieces, we'll meet playing chess or not.

For friends and happy times we had, thanks a lot.
