THANKS TO A.A.

THANKS TO A.A.

(Alcoholics Anonymous)

So many of my neighbors

Involved in A.A. labors…

Say it’s the key

How they were freed,

From alcoholism’s vapors.

One man passes by

To talk to the minister guy…

Comparing notes

With the cause he devotes

Much of his energetic high!

My friend Mike is a Christian too,

Thankful for what they do…

Visiting

When he broke everything,

Their caring pulled him through!

FOLLOWING THE OBVIOUS!

FOLLOWING:  THE OBVIOUS!

 

I wonder what would fizz it

If all 151 came for a visit…

Assuming, too,

I don’t lose a few

For unsatisfactory Kismet.

A poet is very lucky

If eight-to-ten find him plucky…

Any “Likes” more

And they drop to the floor

Out of shock…the poor ducky!

I am not complaining,

Merely doing explaining…

To myself why

So few tend to eye

My work at one time—Likes and comments refraining!

Whatever would I do,

If all of them got through…

The brain might fry

Go to heaven, that’s why

I doubt it’ll ever come true.
