Cancer

Of all of the vulgarities known to man,

there is one that remains supreme.

One that should be avoided at all costs.

Cancer.

To call another human a “cancer” is to call him a special kind of evil.

 The kind that can appear

 Unwelcome

 on a doorstep and make itself at home.

 The kind that erases

hopes

of the future as it takes the scenic route through a body.

The kind that can be chased away

 but will come back in the dead of night,

 taking siege mercilessly.

To call a person a “cancer” is to call them a special kind of evil.
