Cancer, The Killer Disease

Today, is there no answer
To the killer disease cancer?
Boy or girl, young or old,
How many die in this world?

Chain smoking ends in lung cancer,
Chewing tobacco in throat cancer,
Drinking excess in liver cancer,
And drugs in multiple cancer.

The fast food preservatives,
The synthetic food colors,
Or the chemical fertilizers,
May cause this fatal disease.

All habits, anti-nature,
Result in dreadful cancer,
While pollution-free air, water,
And natural foods fight cancer.

The choice is in the hands,
Of these habitual addicts,
To fall into the death trap,
Or from it to escape?

What can't be cured,
Well must be endured.
Oh God, save the mankind
From this painful end.
