I have no money yet I live in the finest homes.
I am not a famous figure yet I am known the world over.
I have no mouth yet I cause conversation daily.
I do not have weapons yet I kill millions.
I have no mouth yet I eat wherever I please.
I have no transportation yet I go anyplace I wish.
I have no brain yet I outwit the most intelligent people.
I am totally silent yet multitudes fear me.
I have no friends yet I have hosts.
I get no invitations yet I am at millions of functions.
So let me introduce myself.........
....My name is Cancer....
