Checkers Poem 2
by Harvey Griffin

Another checker lover poem, by Harvey Griffin,
shares his thoughts on this great game of checkers.

Harvey Griffin poem 2

Checkers Poem 2

We drew it on a cardboard box,
8 x 8 alternate squares of black and white;
Coke bottle tops were used for men;
We called it checkers, game of delight.

We knew nothing of Kear’s Ency.,
Nor about the play in Lee’s Guide.
We played our men move to move,
Playing only for personal pride.

We never heard of the “greats”,
Wyllie, Jordan, Stewart, Banks....
A player able to spot a one for two
Was considered strong in our ranks.

Then someone got a book, Lee’s Guide.
He began to mop up other guys.
Checkers has never been the same.
Now checkers books are common buys.

Today we play on store bought boards,
Fancy colors of beige and green.
Checkers are shades of ochre and orange.
How long have these treasures been?

Checkers poem 2 by Harvey Griffin.
