poems by justin lamb. thanks for reading.
Cancer has a busy agenda, & is an equal opportunity death dealer. Carcinogens are all around us, like hyenas waiting for our willingness to host them. Terrific Q44; sobering.
Isn't that just the way it seems to go? This is such a great use of the short form. Such a zinger. Well done.
I liked how you described the contrast between Irwin's and Henson's health although both seemed to share similar experiences.
You've thrown us a curve ball, Justin - didn't see it coming.
excellent - makes you feel.
That is so sad but cancer strikes anyone, healthy or not ~ The ending was unexpected Justin ~ Thanks for joining in ~
Love the fastfood belly.
I can relate. My brother, mother and father all died of smoking directly related to cancer. They did escape the pot belly though. I'm glad i quit long, long ago
This is so touching.. with an unexpected twist at the end..
It never makes any sense does it.. but everyone approaches it differently, some sadly aren't given a chance. Nice slice of life poem.
It's never really fair is it? there are always those that are outside of statistics.
A good reminder to enjoy every day...we never know what the future holds.
Seems there's no right answer.
