Oldster Booster

by Pat D’Amico

An old lady seeks out a booster
Cause the CDC constantly goosed her,
So she calls up the regional spots
In charge of dispensing the shots.

They all say that’s perfectly fine,
But first you must journey online.
She enters the hideous web
Where reason can trickle and ebb.

Then she’s pointing and clicking away,
Which swallows the bulk of the day.
Appointments, she finds, always tend
To result in a woeful dead end.
