SOUND OF SOBRIETY
Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk crap again,
An AA meeting softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the 12 STEPS that were planted in my brain, still remains
Within the sound of sobriety.

In restless meetings I walked alone
BILL WILSON CLONES, made of stone
Neath the halo of an OLD TIMER,
I turned my collar to the 1st and 3rd STEP
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of
A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
That split the night
And touched the sound of sobriety.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand 12 STEPPERS, maybe more.
12 STEPPERS reading the BIG BOOK,
STEPPERS hearing without listening,
MARY CHRISTINE,
writing her 4TH STEP
PAM, THE FAT SATANIC PIG doing her 5TH STEP
and no one dared
Disturb the sound of sobriety.

ZOMBIES said I, you do not know
SATANISM like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might BRAINWASH you,
Take my arms that I might 13th STEP you.
But my words like the higher power fell,
and echoed
in the halls of sobriety

And the 12 STEPPERS ranted and raved
To the AA god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
in the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, KEEP COMING BACK;
IT WORKS IF YOU
WORK IT!
and the 12 STEP ZOMBIES,
Whispered in the sounds of sobriety.

"Hey Bob"

BILL:]
Hey, hey BOB, I had a SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
Hey, hey BOB, my higher power, will always do
I've waited so long for BOOZE to be through
BOB, I can't wait to meet you
My love, my love

[BOB:]
Hey BILL, I've had a BRAINSTORM too
Hey, hey, hey BILL, I want to meet you too
If your PROGRAM is true, if you love AA, BILL!
The BIG BOOK will always be real
My love, my love

[BILL&BOB:]
AA means planning a life for two
Being together the whole day through
True SOBRIETY means waiting and hoping that soon
HELL will come true
My love, my love

CHAINED STEPPER

Oh, BILL WILSON
My darling
I've hungered for your BIG BOOK
A long, lonely time
And AA goes by so slowly
And AA can do nothing much
Are you still insane?

I need your CULT
I need your CULT
BILL! speed your cult to me

Lonely STEPPERS flow
To the abyss, to the abyss
To the open arms of the abyss
Lonely STEPPERS sigh
Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be a WILSON CLONE
Wait for me!

Oh, BOB SMITH
My darling
I've hungered, hungered, for the STEPS
A long, lonely time
And “HOW IT WORKS” is rarely
seen as anything but crap
Are you still on wine?

I need you Doc!
I need your Doc!

Bob! “speed” your 'BILL' to me!!

Big Book
"The Twelve Traditions" of A.A. are given in this same "Big Book." Note traditions one, two, five and six:

1. - Each member of Alcoholics Anonymous is but a small part of a great whole. A.A. must continue to live or most of us will surely die. Hence our common welfare comes first. But individual welfare follows close afterward.

2. - For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority - a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience.

5. - Each Alcoholics Anonymous group ought to be a spiritual entity having but one primary purpose - that of carrying its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

6. - Problems of money, property, and authority may easily divert us from our primary spiritual aim. (p. 565, italics in original)

For a non-religious organization to have a "primary spiritual aim" is oxymoronic.

Tradition number seven speaks of their "spiritual heritage" and number twelve reads,

12. - And finally, we of Alcoholics Anonymous believe that the principle of anonymity has an immense spiritual significance.

Indeed it does. The "immense spiritual significance" of "anonymity" is that they are walking in darkness, as it is written,

The fool walks in darkness. (Ecclesiastes 2:14)

They keep it anonymous, because they are evil and they do not want themselves and their evil deeds to be exposed, as it is written,

Everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. (John 3:20)

So, the second word in the name of the organization is "Anonymous," and this concept has an "immense spiritual significance ;" yet they are not a religious organization? You can believe that when pig meat is no longer pork.
