Fixed in wax and stuck to glass

They seem rather innocuous

Staring back at me

With their big nucleoli

In fact, they seem rather like cowards

Playing hide and seek

Amongst the normal cells

But their features do not escape me

As their judge and jury

I convict them in my path report

And sentence them to death

By knife, poison, or burning

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Ah, the work of a pathologist never ends!
