It’s Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.
Early Prevention (The Dreaded Smear Test)
It’s that time of year, when we go for a smear
Where mortification feels likely,
It’s something we dread, often pretend we’ve not read
That letter of notification, So we ask, are they sure,
As this feels like a lure,
It can’t be three years already?
But you know that it has and it’s risky to pass,
What may be an early prevention.
So…… you lie on your back, And you try to relax
As you study the cracks on the ceiling
You try to be bold, But those forceps are cold
They came out the fridge, as we’re dreaming
Then it’s just a wee prick, a scrape with a stick
It’s over before you get comfy.
Five minutes it takes, to lessen the stakes
Of cancer from not being noticed.
So come on get a grip, and make this short trip
It’s never as bad as you’re thinking,
Your life is to dear, for a moment of fear
Not to help with what could be prevention,
So go get your smear, hope the results come back clear,
If they don’t……………. it’s been at least……… quick detection.
