Sore Losers

 Wordle 496


Prompt words in red.


to suppress the vote

and lengthen the wait in line


with no water*


is not just a shame

is an evil



designed to crush hope

drain the spring in the soul


don’t trust them

it’s always been about race


*As part of the so-called “Election Integrity Law of 2021,” signed into law March 25, it’s now illegal in Georgia to provide water or food to electors waiting in line.  In early voting for the 2020 Presidential election, Georgia voters in some precincts began lining up at 4:00am for what would become 6, 8, or even 10 hour waits.
