Number 10 on Downing Street
is now the Brown Hotel
There is a new Prime Minister
and we Yanks wish him well.
A Church of Scotland manse was home
to Gordon long ago.
This P M was a P K once
in pea-green wet Glasgow.
A preacher's kid? in Parliament?
Prime Minister no less.
Let's pray that means he'll talk with God
about the Iraq mess.
His countrymen are up in arms
about the war they face.
A war that Tony handed him
most Brits think a disgrace.
A war that just keeps going on
and seems will never end.
And yet a war that can't be won
without our allied friends.
A black mark on our President
is Gordon Brown's concern.
Will he be yellow and pull out?
I guess we soon will learn.
|PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
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.
