A Soldier-like Salute to Mr. Bush_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Best Wishes for a Happy 60th Birthday to our President
Sixty candles on his cake
standing tall to celebrate
three-score years this man has run
in the human race.

Soldier-like each candle stands
paying homage to a man
who has sworn allegiance to
protect our human rights.

Waxing eloquent they speak
of this one world leaders seek.
Candles, that invite his wish,
wear their blazing crowns.

And the fire on their heads
speak of grace that God has shed
on the life of he who serves
in his oval room.

Father God, for George we pray
on this most auspicious day.
Grant him wisdom, health and strength
for the years to come.

* George W. Bush will turn 60 on July 6, 2006

Awesome Rev, out of all your wonderful poems and I can only disagree with this one is not too bad. However, I must take exception to how you describe is values.

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
