It's not a myth
that Lovie Smith
knows how to wake da Bears.
Once hibernating carnivores
smell victory in the air.
Their lengthy sleep
made Bears fans weep.
But those days are now past.
Our victory dance is bowing down.
We've tears of joy at last.
While some thought Rex
had brought a hex,
he proved his critics wrong.
And come the fourth in Florida,
he'll mesmerize the throng.
Miami isn't Peyton Place.
His Colts are sure to be disgraced.
Those Indy horses are no match
for bears from Halas Town.

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.
