Addiction has no preference: a crappy poem

Lawyers, judges, businessmen and bums,

High rises, mansions, neighborhoods and slums,

In the blur there is no difference,

Cause addiction has no preference.


River Phoenix and Jimi Hendrix

Elvis Presley and one of the Ramones

You’re never too talented or rich,

To die pants down on the throne.


Your next door neighbor Steve,

Or Philip Seymour Hoffman,

An addict is an addict

Their addiction will cost them.


Help is never too far from reach

But it might as well be a thousand miles away.

Because without that first step,

A better you is in another day.


You may not look like the bum in the ally,

Or the wino down your street,

But addiction has no preference,

It likes everyone it meets.
