The Big C

They call it the big C
Whisper it gently
They call it the big C
It catches out plenty

Causing        Calamity
Awareness    Afraid
Numbing       Nerves
Creating        Compassion
Ending           Existence
Robustly         Reviled

They call it the big C
Utter it low
They call it the big C
We’ve a long way to go

They call it the big C
One day will there be
Over the big C
Complete victory

    this is fantastic, Owen. Do you think the powers that be would ever allow us to have the cure? I bet there already IS one and we are not let in on the secret!

    Most people don't wish to talk about Cancer, it is as if it is contagious. I guess it makes us face our own mortality and that can be difficult. I think all of us have been affected by the big C. Thanks for putting a spotlight on a sad and relevant topic.

    The big C has or will touch most of us! Maybe one day it will be beaten! We can hope...
