Blatnoy Enters AA
Can you imagine meeting in basement
Of church with criminal drunkards,
Dregs of Amerika, in order prewent you
From drinking because judge demand
You give up you wodka?
He call you addicted,
Habitual drunkard,
And mandate recover.
Give you paper to bring to leader
Of meeting to prove you attending.
Should give liter of wodka,
Drink for you soul
But officer parole recommend powerless water.
So you come to zis place,
Basement of church,
Full of type from Lombroso,
Like pictures from textbook
Coming to life, crowding around
How it can be? Should be like Gorky
Place of disgust and despair,
Instead of nice and well-lit,
Talking, laughing,
Pretending they happy
Coffee and cookie
Instead of double of whiskey
And line of cocaine.
Prob'ly drink it in secret,
Keep it in kitchen,
Pour into coffee.
Or withdrawal begin-
Bug eyed shaking and fighting.
Can you believe it?
And meeting called Twelve to Life.
Like sentence in prison,
While you craving
Great Russian liquor,
Elixir you soul.
