Ode to Goody

Yesterday during my swim I thought of Goody and how it must feel to have it be his last day of Chemo treatments.  I had an idea to write a poem for him, so after my workout, when I got to work yesterday I made up this poem:

Its your last day of chemo
Throw a party, party hardy!
Did you know you're my hero?
Oh Goody, Dear Goody.
Spring brings you new life
With comfort, and less strife.
You've taken this blow like a real pro,
So carry on my brother, and tell that cancer mo fo - "Hell NO!"
