Fearful Thought

by Nora Jay

“Lindsey Graham told Republicans they ‘ought to think about’ getting a coronavirus vaccine.
They booed him. …
[Graham] responded to the crowd, telling them: ‘I didn’t tell you to get it.
You ought to think about it.'”

The Washington Post

“You’ve a choice!” Graham soothed his backers,
Whom his hint had driven crackers.
Here’s a choice I’d choose to lack, sirs:
Lindsey Graham or Anti-Vaxxers.
