flat chested from my double mastectomy
at last people can see my face
large bazookers caused so much disgrace

grabbed, leered at, people were obsessed
never needed that kind of attention
so cancer levelled that pretension

gained sixteen kilos from the treatment
gone was the slim young thing
yet now with contentment I sing

still alive and continue to thrive
with a stable income and home
life is good, no need to roam
