A Guarded Celebration

Great Scott! Guilty Scott.
Quite unlike O.J.,
the jury didn’t close their eyes
and Justice got her way.

Truth wins! Laci wins!
Baby Connor, too.
It took five months to sort the facts
and sift through every clue.

Now what? You know what.
Sentencing awaits.
The jury weighing death or life
will recommend his fate.

Don’t gloat. Please don’t gloat.
Though you’ve never killed,
you know that you are capable
of wrongs you haven’t willed.

Ask God. Speak to God.
Share your heart with Him.
Urge Him to be near to Scott
while dealing with your sin.

The Ultimate Blue Light Special

With Martha in the Big House,
K Mart has sold its home.
It’s scaling down by trading up
to where the Roebucks roamed.

The blue-light beacon’s flashing.
A huge white sale’s inside.
Big K’s now playing hardball
with Sear’s softer side.

The Target is competing
with Mr. Walton’s stores
but time will tell if S and K
will find a way to score.

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
