The Light at the End of the Tunnel Has Been Turned Off

Some blooody Journo
became a bit of a hero
as he struggled and strived
to stay alive
to finish his best-seller
about his Cancer.


He broke the News
in the way his muse
told him: his column –
first daily, then
weekly. A Digest
of his Digestive Collapse.


That’s what got him.


Not the Drinker’s Liver
nor the Smoker’s Lung
nor the Junk-food Junkie’s
Cholesterol Bung.
Something else.
It grew in his tummy like he was a mummy
and he gave it a name and shared his hopeful agonised…


it was all just a game.


A Grand Cosmic Joke.


He became
a household Name
though nobody really knew who he was.


I can’t hold a candle to that.


So when my doctor – MY Doctor – told me…
About me… About my…


I couldn’t ask “How long have I got?”
There was no joke – this was no joke.


This previously Dark Tunnel suddenly
brightly lit, and the exit…(?)


Let’s just say that I won’t be going Into The Light
at the End of The Tunnel.


The Way Out is dark.
