The King's grand wife has left her throne.
Queen Coretta has gone home.
And in her passing North and South
with reverence grieve as one.
With quiet grace young Martin's mate
survived a heartache birthed by hate.
And we her subjects weep for one
who valiantly kept on.
I have a dream (and so do you)
that what she longed for will come true.
When prejudice and power plays
are exiled, judged and damned.
But until then "God save the Queen"
who kept alive her husband's dream
and taught us how to turn a cheek
while letting justice roll.

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.
