Stages (Jun 9 2015) ------------------------------------------------- Stage one cancer is localized. Stage two is locally advanced. Stage three has spread throughout that organ. Stage four has metastasized to other organs and systems. Stage five spreads to your family and loved ones. Stage six goes after your neighbors, the mailman, and the guy who reads the gas meter. Stage seven will steal your car and rob a bank. Stage eight is when it spreads across the city. It may even run for mayor. Stage nine rots the country, ten infects the planet, and eleven the entire universe. For the sake of existence, turn your head and cough. ------------------------------------------------- © 2005-2020 Laurence Simon
