Almost Booked It The way my Dad described it Was for a brief amount of time He believed he might book a vaccine appointment. There was an open slot. He woke my Mom at 1am, "Let's Book!" By time they filled in the questionnaire And hit submit, though, it was gone. They've stumbled on a bit of luck since then: A friend who knew of some openings at a pharmacy. Again, false starts--unrecognized submissions But eventually they triumphed. My Aunts were not so fortunate. Tomorrow they'll roll the dice again, Play all the sites, Refresh...refresh...refresh, Until they hit the jackpot: A little box that says 4:40pm.
