MEMBER’S POEM: A FRIEND
A faithful friend is hard to find’
Who’ll stand through thick and thin, ]
But my ‘ ‘dog, ‘Dutch,
‘ is just ‘the kind
Who’d do that sort of thing.
She’s just a ‘Cairn terrier pup,
‘ As full of mischief as can, be.
With ears and tail cocked up so bold
As straight as one can see.
Two gleaming eyes, a cold, ‘wet ‘nose,
She stands there all agog,
A tiny bark, a wagging- tail
And that is ‘Dutch,’ my dog.
― Alcoholics Anonymous
“Walk the Bowery under the El at night and all you feel is a sort of cold guilt. Touched for a dime, you try to drop the coin and not touch the hand, because the hand is dirty; you try to avoid the glance, because the glance accuses. This is not so much personal menace as universal — the cold menace of unresolved human suffering and poverty and the advanced stages of the disease alcoholism.”
― E.B. White, Here Is New York
Cooperation is joining together
to help another
to believe in something
they might have thought
they could have never have done.
