Space Occupying Lesion: A Poem

Space Occupying Lesion

By Fredrick Martyn

You take up space within my head
Your influence I pray it does not spread
Today your presence makes me nauseous
Tomorrow, I hope it’s not more noxious
I sense you there, with your malignant aroma
I yearn for resection, dear glioblastoma
