BANKER BOB

Banker Bob wears suspenders and a bow tie
is older than God
rents rooms to the newly sober
bridges no bullshit.

Old school AA he brooks no whining
insists newbies suit up and show up.
Never loses sight of the disease
that wants to kill us.

He is just a man
many years sober
doing what we are taught
saving lives.

Don’t talk, listen.
Don’t try, do.
Walk the talk.
Keep it simple.

Help another alcoholic.
