Corona Pt. 32

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,
Until they hit the jackpot: 
A little box that says 4:40pm.
