A Tale of Two Drugs

by Chris O’Carroll

“Michael Andrew, an Olympic gold medal favorite, says he won’t be vaccinated for Tokyo”
Yahoo News

“Sha’Carri Richardson will miss Tokyo Olympics in wake of suspension over marijuana test”

The swimmer bound for Tokyo
Says, “No vaccine for me.”
The runner didn’t make the team
Because of THC.

While I would share Sha’Carri’s weed
With equanimity,
I think I’d rather not inhale
In Mike’s vicinity.
