Losing the Game

“We cure the symptoms, but we’re killed by the disease”
-from Have Mercy by Richard Marx

disparate
non-standard symptoms
were well-blocked
and tackled
while the cancer ran a post
and scored a touchdown

    Rob,

    Sorry, I severely misunderstood your poem today and wanted to offer you an apology. Totally missed the word cancer until I read it again. Lost my dad to cancer last year. I hope this finds you well.

    Benjamin
