CANCER MAN
(4/11/14)


I am
the new
human

the synthesis
of man
and disease

the cancer
didn't kill
me

it became
me

or I
became
the cancer

the affliction
has merely
been searching
all of this time
for someone
worth saving

the goal
was never
to destroy

the goal
was to change
us
into something
stronger

something
greater
than our pathetic
selves

I'm
so happy
that it found
me

but now
I must leave

I could
stay
and offer myself
as the antibody

but the time
has come
for the demise
of this weaker
race

I will
escape
to the desert

find a cave
in which
to live

in which
to wait
for a woman
worthy of me

to repopulate
this weak
and wasted
planet

our progeny
will swim
in the sewer
that we
have created

and survive

thrive

they will
spread

metastasize

forcing out
those
without cancer
in their DNA

nothing
can stop
us

we will
rule
