All done. (a short poem, I think, is in order).

Cancer, I drop trou at thee!

For you have been a most unwelcome guest, lo these last 9 months..

NAY!  nearly three years, in fact!

Yet, I have cooked for you, and shared my bourbon.

My wife has cleaned up after you and your dirty underpants.

My freinds and family: REAL guests!

Guests who arrive with groceries, and rub my feet,

and pick up after themselves..  They have put up with your foul temper,

your abusive language, your shitty sense of humor, and your total lack of imagination.

So I say, “fuck you, AND your horse..  You are not welcome here.”

“high thee hence!!”

“get lost!”


I will not open the door when you ring the bell.

And I hope you get the same treatment anywhere else you try to stay.

I hope you die lonely.

(I pray I have made it clear to you that we are not friends. Lose my number.)

  52. Greg Holbert

    This poem is a great reminder to help people remember to keep fighting! Cancer won’t quit, so you shouldn’t either!

    Fight for those who have lost their fight, like my mother, Lei Ann Holbert who died of colon cancer in 2008… I will love you always, mom. I always will miss hearing you say you love me back, but I can still feel it when I think of you.

  53. Lisa Portelli

    Keep fighting the fight. Amen.
