Carpe Diem: Cancer

This is my sign

Cancer the Crab - 69
Cancer is the Crab
soft shell are hard to get this
far from the ocean.

I can think of a 
better use of 69
than my horoscope

Hard outer shell but
soft and delicate inside
likes buttering up

Crabby paddy is
a treat for Sponge Bob Square Pants
too much kids TV

Too much kids TV
wears away at my patience
and makes me crabby

Chemotherapy
blasting away at cancer
live to fight again.

Seafood, sex, disease
personality, TV
stick a fork in crab

  2. Good one, I have different associations with Cancer (The Crab), but these haiku are all well crafted. PS. I am an oncology-nurse so cancer has a different meaning to me.
