THE DREADED BIG “C”


THE DREADED BIG “C”

 

The dreaded Big “C” is among us,

When we hoped we had it licked…

A C.A.T.  scan will find its location

And sooner the problem is nicked.

It’s “second time around” for the missus

‘Though this time it seems not as bad…

One wonders how deep penetration is,

The surgeons claim just a tad.

Even so, like last time, we are on edge

Hoping it’s gone in one “take”…

We haven’t told family or many friends,

To save from emotional quakes.

We’ll know by this weekend how things will turn out,

Not worrying yet till it looks bad…

We won’t know for sure ’til microsurgery’s done

But we’ll be happy for all the years that we’ve had.
