Alcoholism

Dark forces have created a disease
That even blocks an angel’s heart from reason.
Unnoticed flying freely through the breeze
We’re innocent participants of treason.

There are some heroes fighting what is done
As this disease keeps spreading more and more
With government enforcing how it’s run
A plague is spread about from shore to shore.

Can we allow without the slightest pause
The good of man to be so contradicted?
Can we believe it justified because
There are some folks who will not be afflicted?

Can it be worth the horrors and the fears?
The draining sore of human lives laid waste?
Can it be worth one battered daughter’s tears?
To keep a germ because you like it’s taste?

We really know down deep inside what’s right.
True angels know when blood is on our hands.
So thanks, but I’ll just have a diet Sprite-
And hope the one who joins me understands.

John H. Bidwell

Hot chocolate with a large dollop of whipped cream for me John.
I have not written but once today. Here I am reading poetry because I'm having withdrawal symptoms.
Blessings,

My dear friend, I've seen alcoholism destroy too many families. It's a horrible disease. One thing I have learned. The alcoholic has to be the one to WANT to quit....it's their decision. No matter how badly we want it for them, the choice is theirs. God bless, sweet friend.

it's unfortunate how a particular political lobby can influence the government and allow such an addictive poison on the market ...

YOu are so right with this one, I think there are very few among us who have not experienced the horror of this disease first hand or through someone we care about. Great write on a frightening subject.

John,

I'll join you for a Diet Coke (that's my addiction). :) I can relate--alcohol is an insidious addiction. I gave it up 23 years ago. :) Don't desire it at all any more...now if I could give up these damn smokes....

An excellent, potentially life saving write. :) Thank you, Sir!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
