THE C-WORD

By
We don't say the c-word,
And we don't say her name.
Saying things won't bring her back,
It'll never be the same.
I don't think the c-word,
Except for a passing time or two,
And if you mention it,
I'll probably ignore you.
I hate the c-word
And I'd die to stop it,
But everything scientists do,
The c-word finds a way to top it.
We don't say the c-word,
so don't ask me about it.
And when I say the c-word,
I won't just say it, I'LL SHOUT IT!
I don't care if you're my father,
My sister, teacher, my brother...
I won't say the c-word.
The C-word killed my mother.
