Deep Throat Comes Forward
Deep Throat Comes Forward_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why others need to too A Federal informant
with tattles to tell
divulged off the record
the truth he knew well.

His deep-throated whispers
three decades ago
led Woodward and Bernstein
to pave Nixon's woe.

His secrets uncovered
the lies we'd been told.
And though he was nameless,
we knew he was bold.

Deep Throat blew the whistle
on white collar crime.
He dared to be daring
and pointed out grime.

The world needs more like him
who'll stand up to wrong.
Who won't bow to pressure
no matter how long.

It also needs Woodwards
who'll vow not to snitch
and then keep their word
rather than getting rich.

In short, we need voices
who'll say what some hate.
Who'll recognize scandals
and cry "Watergate."

It's intriguing to me that the FBI had the info on Watergate. 1) Why did they have it? Were they watching everybody, including White House employees? Are they still watching everybody? 2) If the FBI had, for whatever reason, information that government leaders, elected, appointed, or hired, were involved in crime, shouldn't it have been officially reported, to someone, somewhere, other than in secret to a journalist? It seems Mr. Hoover was the most powerful man in America, and could choose to reveal what was known, at his discretion. That's frightening!

Thanks for the brief poetry.

I watched and absorbed this saga unfold from beginning to end. This is what it takes for unscrupulous people to be shown the end result of their folly.
This day and age, we need more whistle blowers to come forward and tell what they know is wrong about certain issues. There needs to be some "soul searching" in our Goverment Offices today.

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
