Bursting balloons spew cancer confetti
Leaving one sick and frail
Consuming cells; there’s fever, one’s sweaty
One’s skin is dry and pale
As mossy tentacles destroy their host
While creating beauty of form
Cancer consumes human tissue for growth
Now battle the oncoming storm!
The evil aggressor invades one’s cells
Traveling an erratic path
The surgeon’s scalpel leaves empty shells
Increases one’s helpless wrath.
Seal one’s sites of nourishment
Deny the craving raider
Their are years ahead yet to be spent
Not hosting the cell invader.
