Oh, my. Yet one more bout of cancer--now on my crown.
I have met Her in so many various forms.
She continually attempts to slip past my bulwark,
Attempting entry into my inner vulnerable, vital mortal coil.
So far, Her nemesis, my knight-like doctor, has repaired the gates
And maintained a defensible depth in the moats.
To demonstrate our courage and defensive posture--
I laugh and joke, while discussing poetry and medicine and science
With my capable surgeon who, during this last episode,
Cut out a teaspoon-sized pit down to my very skull.
So there, undeterred, and fiercely opposing---You Cancer!
(Dedicated to all those with difficult maladies.)
