Cancer's Veil

Carcinoma, melanoma sick twins Inside their innocuous hosts grin For surface tension brings no chagrin Another, common diagnosis will time lend Healthy cell structures to amend Immune systems with guile befriend In state of denial, journey begins Signs not to the human eye hidden But worry has healthy mind forbidden Asbestos, carbon dioxide, dioxin Immune filters will certainly fend Smoking, over eating, years of gin Only near life's end wages will append Per chance through pore seeps pathogen To rally antibody troops always an antigen Discolored figment under skin Bright pigment from allergen A red rash can dry with benzine Yellowish splotch need carotene Brownish bump harmless toxin Black mole surely genetic origin Benign cyst lacking needed vitamin Purplish lesion can cure with Neosporin Small lump only a gland that's swollen Goiter rarely takes malignant spin
