~~ Let Me Introduce Myself ~~

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 any place 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.
