I'M CANCER (standard:poetry, 141 words)
Author: denis holzhauserAdded: Mar 12 2001Views/Reads: 2795/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Cancer as a relentless adversary as it attacks the human body

It sidles and it scurries and it nips you to the quick 

It hides inside the darkness and begins to make you sick 

The white robed proctor tries to stop it;maybe make you well 

The worm just smiles and smirks and says "you can't sir,i'm cancer 

You just scream and shriek and yell 

It has no lips or mouth or teeth 

It works such long hours,never rest or sleep 

Blood,bones,heart or kidney,to it,it's all a feast 

So you moan and groan and try to remember how to pray 

It says,"why're doing all that crying,I ain't never going away 

The General in white,begins the fight,with tools of impresive array 

He tries his gases,acids,gashes to make you live another day 

But it just smiles and simpers,and you'll hear it say 

He'll never get it right,takes a bigger bite to really make you pay
