Taking a Meeting

To take a meeting snuck into the language
under my radar, but the web implies
an origin with “Hollywood types.”
I believe perhaps it fits better with Recovery types.
A meeting is a necessary tool for recovery,
best with other real people perhaps
but effective with telephone or online meetings.
Overeaters Anonymous  has a monthly periodical
Lifeline called “A MEETING ON THE GO”
and that’s a wise meeting to take.
After all, “Meeting makers make it,”
and “People who don’t go to meetings
don’t hear what happens to
people who don’t go to meetings!”
