The Big C On A Spree!

So continuing on with things that get a rise is the big C that picks everyone off like flies. Humans or animals we all get it. For a to z we go on a cancer bit.

Cancer, a downer,
Even for an out of towner.
Can strike at any time,
Even if in your prime.

But that we know.
Can even get it in a toe.
The human body is grand.
Too bad you can't kill it with sand.

Instead radiate yourself.
Become a bump on a shelf.
Quality of life down the tube.
Enjoy a nice little ice cube.

Years upon years of giving,
And barely any more are living.
Cancer is still wide spread,
And almost as many drop dead.

Last a little longer maybe.
And can get rid of it if caught early.
But other than that,
It seems to rack up another stat.

But don't let that deter.
Sit there and purr.
Help fund cancer research.
We'll leave it in the lurch.

Billions of dollars a year,
With nothing to show for it we fear.
Still the same way to kill it.
Fight body shit with body shit.

But trust and donate.
Add to our collection plate.
Fund cancer with each bill.
We'll still let it kill.

Then on the flip side,
Fads are far and wide.
Can cure cancer by drinking your own pee.
Sadly, I actually saw that spree.

Nuts on both sides.
Both taking people for rides.
And the why I think you know,
It all comes back to the dough.

There is my rant on that. Cancer has been seen by more than a few close to the cat. Damn, thing is everywhere. Without it, poof billions lost to the big pharma lair. Will there ever be a cure for any of it? Not until something really bad happens then out a cure they'll spit. At least that is my take and sass. Cancer can just kiss my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  9. I was just saying this week that the poor ones that have it go into treatment that is pure hell and then usually die anyway. So sad. I'd have to think twice and really weigh the chance of beating it before I felt like crap and was sick as a dog during my last days instead of enjoying what little time I had left. Not to mention the terrible cost of it all. Hard decision but I can certainly understand those that don't want all of that if the end is the same.

    That being said, just yesterday it was announced that the Huntsman Cancer Center in Utah is on the brink of a cure for Melanoma and the news story was very interesting in how they trick the body to attack the cancer like a virus instead of letting it invade and destroy.

    no rhyme...I know! Geesh....next time.

    1. Wow, look at you
      Got you going at my zoo haha
      That is great if a cure for that comes due
      But people have been on the "brink" for years now at many a zoo
      So I'll believe it when it comes true
      And yeah, the cost is a ton at any zoo
      And most don't make it or are screwed up fort he rest of life
      So I'd avoid that stupid strife
      In the end the chemo gets more than the cancer does too
      Better off rolling in goo

  18. I don't think I can rhyme this, so I won't try to, seems it is extremely rare that one actually beats cancer (some forms yes, others no). When I heard someone has a particular form of it, I know its just a matter of time. We all think we will beat it, but it actually beats us more often than not. I do admire those brave valiant people that get it and try to fight it to their literal dying day.

    You truly aren't afraid to take on anything to write, are you? :)
