Is it cancer?
Or is it something else
which steals from
the mind its rational thought?

Or perhaps it’s
like cancer in the way it
seems to grow
and manipulate and take over.

So we will call it
cancer and pretend what this
truly is doesn’t
exist and all can sleep more

easily at night-
for the guilt of a world we
can’t control and
don’t help to improve will

weigh less heavily
on our cowardly shoulders…
