Lost battle

He was there recumbent like a log Cancer has culminated,prevailing over him Enfeebled all his shielding apparatuses Yet spurned to frolic prolongation Eschewed palliative care ministrations He detected the vital prognosis was engaged He had instead to plough money into God's certitude For he realized HE implements nothing fortuitously Could he yet afford to acquit himself otherwise Engage in a battle lost right from the dawn ?
