All Alcoholics are Anarchists in their heart of hearts.
They just don’t always know it.
They loved to bend or break the rules,
And each in their own way,
Said “Fuck You!” to society.
And then they drank,
and drank,
and drank.
Trying to break free.
So AA is just and anarchist collective.
They pay no dues or fees.
A self-sustaining organization with kitchens.
And more importantly,
Coffee.
They have a few simple rules its true.
But they are basic guides
For each group to interpret as their own.
As they go through meetings,
Anonymously.
Their common thread, their Higher Power
Something Bigger than themselves.
Much as in the Spanish Civil War
Patchwork troops sewn together by
Catalonia.
So it is the Alcohol and the Anarchy.
