Note to Cancer 

This is a poem for a friend who is currently battling the evil that is cancer.

Cancer you bastard! There’s no way that you’ll beat me

I’ll kick your ass with help from all my friends and family

I’ll fight with everything and more, see I’ve got so much to live for

Three beautiful girls, and a partner who dotes

Are you taking this in? Are you taking notes?

I’ll eat well, have chemo, and radiotherapy

So I’ll reiterate my statement, there’s no way you’re beating me!

I’ll be happy, and positive, and live life to the full

With support and love from everyone which amounts to buckets full

You can try and do your worst to me, but there’s one thing that I know

There’s no way you will best me,  I’ll be here to watch my girls grow
