Attempting to Tally the Sum and Substance of 9-11

A set of numbers that still doesn't add up five years later.

Attempting to Tally the Sum and Substance of 9-11
Five years ago two towers fell.
Four planes (like bullets) unleashed Hell.
One nation (fractured) under God
fell to its knees in prayer.

Ground Zero found us hand in hand
without the means to understand
how terrorists could rob us blind
and steal our innocence.

They looted unsuspecting lives
who tried in vain to just survive.
Those heartless, evil, godless thieves
killed thousands in one day.

But since that time they've stolen more.
Like brave young soldiers felled by war.
And peace of mind we had in spades
just sixty months ago.

And yet that peace can be regained,
if we refuse to focus blame
on anyone except those thugs
who hate the land we love.

United States, oh let us be
united, bound to all agree
that we are strongest when we fight
a common enemy.

Very sentimental, Greg, but you miss the fact that the thugs who hate the land we love and brought this on us are in Rome-on-the-Potomac. Even if you dismiss all of the other conspiracy theories in favor of the government's conspiracy theory, you should be faulting the incompetents who failed to follow their own policies and procedures that should have prevented 9/11 from ever happening.

In other words, don't blame the thugs overseas who strike back us any way they can over the Federal government's imperialism - blame the thugs in Washington for trying to dominate the world (as well as ourselves) and creating enemies for us.

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
