You Don't Know Jack
You don't know Jack
whose oiled bat
could swing with endless grace.

You don't know Jack
who dodged much flack
like millions of his race.

You don't know Jack
who freed the blacks
and steeled their walk toward home.

You don't know Jack
and looking back
you hardly are alone.

You don't know Jack,
whose home run crack
in Brooklyn made him great.

You don't know Jack.
Admit your lack
by being born too late.

The Puss of Prejudice
Why the Don Imus Show deserves to be gonged.

I must insist
Imus must go.
Those Rutgers girls
are hardly 'ho's.

Don's oozing bias
(much like puss)
is quite revolting.
Can the cuss.

Unlike the grace
the Dodgers showed
to Jackie R
so long ago

Don Imus proves
we've not arrived.
His comments mean
racisim thrives.

The likes of him
cause hurt and fear.
So drain the puss.
He's out of here!

His free speech rights
were rather wrong.
Chuck Barris please
go bang the gong.

Is that your rap music? 2/4 or 4/4? Yes, Imus was very wrong in making such statements, but who is perfect but [ONE.] JESUS. Comedians make rude, perverted remarks about blacks and whites.

The Rutgers women accepted Imus' apology. Sponsors pulled the plug on Imus and it may only hurt themselves.

I'm not an Imus fan but here are the facts: Imus had a 40 million dollar thon, 1.3 million for a children's fund for SIDS, a New Mexico ranch organization for children with cancer. He has helped lots of children.

What has Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson accomplished?

I probably would have written about this too, if I had not missed my deadline, so I am not being in holier than thou in my next observation.
What amuses me, sort of, is how many tens of millions of us who had never heard the slur now know it because the news organizations are so careful to repeat it and repeat it.

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
