[During the pandemic-induced lockdown, though we have religiously observed social distancing and the use of face masks, in our diminished badminton plays (from the usual 3 times a week, to just a mere Sunday play), we were a bit afraid that we might be apprehended by the police for violating IATF rules. But, with the long, dull, tedious and boring lockdown, we finally decided to secretly converge at our badminton court. It was because, just as has been advised by medical experts, we have to do exercise to keep us all fit and covid-free. During our regular plays before, we have a bunch of lawyers, police officers, fiscals, judges and doctors even.]
BATTLEDORE was the original name of this cock and racquet GAME…
And as we’re now all involved in a COVID war, it’s just almost the SAME;
In BADMINTON we’re focused on hitting a thing that’s FLYING- –
Now, scientists are immersed at “hitting” a cure on a virus that’s RAMPAGING!
In our quorum of four, and who all know how to SCORE…
We’ve someone from the health sector, police sector and much MORE- –
The health rep though not on infectious DISEASE-
Gives out however sort of medical bulletins that surely would not CEASE!
And just seeing the police officer in our QUORUM…
Will quickly remind us, though we’re in a playing FORUM;
That we still have to observe all those quarantine PROTOCOL- –
Or else, we might get it with a “YANTOK” that will bring us much “BUKOL”!
