Clinton's Bill_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why his honorarium for speeches is less than honorable When Clinton bills for giving talks,
his fee’s enough to rock your socks.
It’s almost half a mill per speech
for one disbarred who was impeached.

It’s not quite right. In fact, it’s wrong
that he who snapped an intern’s thong
should offer virtuous advice
and then demand that kind of price.

But then again why would some pay
to listen to what he might say?
He isn’t known for honesty,
commitment or morality.

It’s true, he was the President,
but does that make what groups have spent
a wise investment of their dues
to hear Slick Willy share his views?

Me thinks that while his fee’s a crime,
those who invite him should do time.

My goodness! Well! And, mercy me!

I think I smell hypocrisy!

It is a shame, it is a crime

That all who sin don't do their time.

Although I think Bill C. was wrong

For snapping aforementioned thong

I think Georgie's war unjustified

When to our nation he has lied*.

Cheney and Scalia's interest conflicts

Ring of cozy little cliques

Where favorable terms seem up for sale

Within a duck blind! Their story's frail.

Reagan's arms deals with many nations

Sent my wallet into palpatations!

And the Bushes marriage with the Saudis?

A lifetime of behaviors naughty.

CEO's salaries are out of whack

While moral leadership they seem to lack.

Entertainment stars? Sporting men?

Who knows where all this greed will end?

But no one works 'em like Bennett Bill

He shook his finger on Capitol Hill

Although his speaking fees took the cake

At the casino he wanted to raise those stakes.

So be careful before you let judgments fly

Examine the speck in your own eye**

Don't hitch your star to politics for your salvation

Show more compassion, it'll help your nation.

*Or did those pesky WMD's finally show up?

** Matthew 7:1-5

p.s. According to ABC news, Clinton's speaker fees averaged $158K per talk...the last known published fees.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
