Hyde and Seek
Hyde and Seek (the Illinois Version)_Greg Asimakoupoulos-The fall elections are anything but child's playWhat Henry Hyde's vacating
a guy named Roskam seeks.
He's running strong and confident
to claim that long-held seat.

His foe's a female veteran
who feels the war is wrong.
Ms. Duckworth quacks a liberal tune
some anti-Bush folk song.

For Roskam, freedom matters.
For Duckworth, tolerance.
For him, the bucks are raised in-state.
For her, they're East Coast funds.

The pundits of both parties
are focused on Chi-town.
A race for U. S. Congress there
has foreheads knit in frowns.

This campaign's a bellwether
of how the rest will go.
Will those who back the President
survive? We soon will know.

I always read with interest Greg's poems and wish that I had the talent to write them. However, Greg, is often on the other side of issues that I support.

In this poem, Greg says, For him, the bucks are raised in-state. This is speaking of the Republican candidate for Congress from Chicago. He goes on to suggest that all of the Democratic opponent's raises all of her money from the east coast.

This creates for me some concern about the honesty of this statement. I looked at the Republican's web sight only to fine him seeking campaign funds from me and anyone else who sees the web site. Now, Greg, I live in North Carolina and you live in Washington state. Do the bucks all have a post mark from Illinois?

Your suggestion that the Democratic candidate's money comes only from the east coast. Where on the east-coast, Greg?

You need to rethink you positions on the political scene and prehaps do some enlightened reading. Might I suggest former Republican Senator John Danforth's book on religion and politics, or perhaps John Dean's Conservatives without Conscience, or maybe Jimmy Carter's latest.

Have you read that President's Bush's chief advisor Karl Rove call the leaders of the Christian Right a bunch of nuts.

I hope that you will stop following these so blindly.

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
