The Truth About a Lying Dad


The Truth About a Lying Dad
The Balloon Boy hoax was a lot of hot air

It's a bird! It's a plane!
It's a hot-air balloon
and a tall tale as true
as the man in the moon.
Reported as missing,
Balloon Boy was fine.
His dad's allegations
were simply a line.
A media frenzy.
A father who lied
successfully took
all of us for a ride.
This ego-fed fat head
who hungered for fame
must now chew on his choices
and swallow his shame. 
Obama, Osama
Reminding the President of a promise
Obama, "Osama (bin Laden)," says Biden,
"is likely to test your defense."
Al Qaida's is ready
to strike where we're weak.
You know who we're fighting against.

Obama, Osama (still wanted) is waiting
to see if you're up to the task
to hunt him with vengeance
in mountains and caves
to finally find him at last.

Obama, Osama (quite cocky) is cunning
and will not be out-ed with ease.
Yet you've been elected
to show him who's boss.
Your job is to buckle his knees.

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
