The Donkey King's Temper Tantrum
The Donkey King’s Temper Tantrum_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Questioning Clinton’s right to criticize Temper, temper, Mr. Clinton.
Look at how you lost your cool.
Donkey King, you were a jackass.
Kicking foxes? What a mule!

Temper, temper, Mr. Clinton.
Who are you to come unglued?
Ms. Lewinski had your focus,
not that tall bin-Laden dude

Temper, temper, Mr. Clinton.
You who call the kettle black
You who stir the stew of rancor
bubbling about Iraq.

Temper, temper, Mr. Clinton.
Tantrums like you just displayed
cause us to reveal your foibles
and discount your pious bray.

Sir Asimakoupoulos:

Your Clinton poem is really far-rightwing. You need to dig into W's past history and it's not too rosey. W. does not have wings as most people think, rather lots of blood on his hands. And where was W. during the Vietminh War? Oh, yes. He was hiding behind his daddy. And where was W. when WTC was taking blows? He was at a school and looking rather dumb when told of the ordeal in New York. Everybody who dislikes Clinton needs to open history books or go on line and read what W. is all about. Gosh, I wouldn't have one drink with that guy. Oh, by the way, where are W's girls? Not in the the Big War? Clinton did the best to keep the USA safe. Not W.!!!!!!!!

Great Poem and very appropriate. In the Fox interview Mr. Clinton stomped around the truth like a child, very much like he did for eight years. Wallace asked some very legitimate questions but got a childlike response.

W has been unwavering in a very difficult situation. He is a man who stands strong for what he believes in and wants to finish the job that was started. The job that the majority of people and diplomats in this country agreed needed to be done.

My goodness Greg! You publish one of your more holier than thou poems and bingo! - the same day, Congressman Mark Foley - hero of the Christian Right in South Florida is caught with his pants down and computer on, sending nasty emails to young boys. Old Bill Clinton is a dog, I grant, but at least he fell from grace with a woman over 18! How are you going to spin this in your next poem? Do you think someone is sending you a message about self-righteousness? Hmm?

Greg, my, my, you have little room to critize Bill. You have firmly planted yourself in the middle of the Christian Right. You and your Dr. Dobson go much too far in being critical of Democrats. I really don't believe that Bill lost his cool. I believe that Bill used the opportunity to show the nation just what the neocons are trying to do. You seem terribly closed minded in this one Greg. You have done just wonderful jobs in the past. Are you getting Christian Right writer's block? Please back off and take a good look at your poem. It offended me and many others.

Clinton's red-faced appearance with Chris Wallace was obviously contrived. His purpose was to get the Democrats fired up for the November 7 election.

Judging from several of the comments above, you Clintonistas need to get a sense of humor. Pretty thin-skinned about criticism of the Slick One, aren't you?

Let's remember that His Slickness lied to a federal grand jury on national TV. (But that was about SEX-- so it's OK, right?)

And Clinton is the only elected U. S. president ever to be impeached. (But that was just because those mean old Republicans didn't like him-- right?)

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
