|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 Tweet
