Another Great is Gone_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Remembering the mosaic-like life of Charton HestonThe one who brought Ben Hur to life
the Moses of the NRA
has reached his Mount Nebo
Convincingly this actor dashed
God's chiseled ten commands.
We watched as tablets made of stone
fell from his "cold dead hands."
He had one wife for six decades.
His life was quite a tale.
He marched with Martin, brunched with Bush,
then watched his memory fail.
Like Ronald Reagan, Heston was
A complex life with warts and quirks
whose talents will be missed.
Peace to his memory!

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.
