The Bonus Christmas
I am not a miracle, I'll have you know.
I'm very scientifical in fact.
And just because this cancer thing I've got
Is not behaving as vets say it should,
It's all to the good.
But not a miracle. Understood?
Because a WFT's a complex entity,
His journey can't be easily foretold.
So many interactions and what ifs,
Combine to unpredictable effect,
And when that means another year of life
Please join with me and celebrate!
I might be, statistic'ly,
An outlier in survival terms.
But though it's sometimes difficult to pee
And Gail finds it a bore to wait for me,
In all other ways, these sweet extra days
Are, oh I nearly said the word,
A miracle (of sorts).
