Wall to wall sunshine

Standard

Sunday 31st May

.

Wall to wall sunshine

Bodies on the beach

Cooking away nicely

Sunscreen! I beseech

.

Vitamin D is necessary

Please don’t get me wrong

But frying like a lobster

Damage could be life long

.

So many burnt shoulders

Peeling, unsightly skin

D’you know what you’ve done?

What’s going on, within?

.

Melanoma; skin cancer

Might not happen today

But a few years down the line

It’ll be nothing to downplay

.

You can’t just cut it out

For it’s a sneaky beast

Lying dormant, then

Like a devil, released

.

Taking over your life

Biopsies, skin grafts

Scans and appointments

Normality’s in the past

.

Just always worrying

Asking when it will return

Scanxiety, melanoia

A real cause for concern

.

So slap on some sunscreen

And wear a big hat

Seek shade when it’s hot

Prevention’s where it’s at

.

Melanoma awareness

Throughout the month of May

But it mustn’t stop here

Care for your skin everyday

.

Love you forever

Beloved Angel son
