Cancer is used as a metaphor
For all things ugly and bad
Just the mention of cancer
Makes people uneasy and sad

Cancer scares most people
It makes them tremble in fear
They don't even want
.... Cancer victims near

Cancer is not contagious
You can't catch it like the flu
So don't avoid its victims
That's not the thing to do

Cancer is not just a physical thing
It affects your mind in turn
If "cured" of's not the end ...
You wait for its return.
