“LABELS KEEP ME SOBER!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Whatever Works IS Super! So, WORK THE PROGRAM; Don’t Be A Pooper!!” 🙂 April 22, 2018 – SUN day …

“I’m a DRUNK – and everybody HERE is a drunk!”

I like IT! ADMITTING I’M A DRUNK! You, Punk! 🙂

And, if you’re not a drunk, GO AWAY!

This-is-for-drunks! EVERY DAY!

We meet AND REINFORCE,

That we are drunk, of course!

ONCE A DRUNK, ALWAYS A DRUNK –

And AA’s GOOD, YOU BIG, OL HUNK!

You never get better – Can’t drink NO MORE,

I’m-a-drunk; (I) have been, for a score(?)

(I) got my SCORE PIN!! I’m so proud,

I SHOUT IT OUT, SHOUT IT OUT, LOUD:

‘Cause, I’M NOT – an “I-can-hold-my-liquor” person,

And I’ve ALSO stopped most-o-my-cursin’ !

I cursed a lot when I was drinking,

I AM A DRUNK – AND I’M S T I L L STINKING!!

IF I DRINK – well, I (just) CAN’T DO IT!

(’CAUSE) I’M-A-DRUNK – I won’t (never) get a round tuit!

NOW –

A man walked in the other day,

He walked right in – to OUR AA,

And he sat down – SAID-HE-WAS-A-DRUNK,

(and) WE CLAPPED AND CHEERED FOR WHAT HE THUNK!

THEN!!!

He said: “I’m-also-a(n)-I-CAN-HOLD-MY-LIQUOR-GUY!”

We said: “No, no, now – don’t you lie!”

“I’m BOTH,” He said; “and neither at all!!” 🙂

And some of our group began to “ball!”

WE THREW HIM OUT – FOR BLASPHEMY,

FOR KIDDIN’-WITH-DRUNKS-YOU-AND-ME –

That DRUNK! Thinkin’ he’s a(n) I-CAN-HOLD-MY-LIQUOR-GUY!

(laughter from “the members”)

THEN HE FLEW!

INTO THE SKY!!

🙂 – “That drunk! A flying drunk!”

“You just can’t trust FLYING DRUNKS! I refuse to have them in the house! UNLESS, of course, it’s a tree house!” The Mystic Poet.
