A little punning around with stage 4 cancer: my apologies

My Neuropathy – Sing to the tune of All Apologies by Nirvana

What else cant i eat? No meal is complete
Vegetable shakes no steak? Sugar is my bane
How tired am I today? I think in bed I’ll stay.
I cant feel my feet? My neuropathy

Can’t take sun, Its not fun
In the scan, In the scan
NED?
NEAD?
YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH Yeah.

I am now stage 4, there’s a chemo course
I wish I was stage 3, that’s when I was free
I cant feel my hands, I cant even stand
Can’t think of what to say, chemo brain today

In the sun, I will burn a bright red I will turn
Metastases,
Metastases,
YEAH YEAH Yeah Yeah

  1. Thanks for your kind comment on my little picturedwords blog, and for pointing me here. Nice to meet you! This poem is great! I enjoy poeming to a well-known song sometimes. It can be a whole lot of fun! I’m so sorry about your cancer, Ilene. Your attitude is fantastic. May God bless and hold and comfort and wholly heal you. Hang in there, and keep writing!

Tell me what you think.
