It's a Warner-ful Life

It's a Warner-ful Life
A comeback story of Super Bowl proportions

Like George Bailey of Bedford Falls
who knew the sting of dreams that stalled,
Kurt Warner couldn't understand
why hopes were put on hold.

A gifted college quarterback,
he had "the stuff" and was on track
to make the pros and make a name.
But Kurt was sadly cut.

First by The Pack and then Da Bears.
Rejection? Yes, more than his share.
But, Kurt refused to just give up.
In hardship, faith was born.

And while it's true he found the Lord,
he also found three to adore.
A single mom with two small kids
who'd been to Hell and back.

When Brenda nabbed her shining knight,
Kurt turned her topsy world upright.
Brain injury, heartache and death
gave way to hope and life.

And Brenda helped her knight hold on
to dreams he thought were dead and gone.
What Mary Bailey gave to George,
Kurt got from his best fan.

And just like in that Capra script
where George at last made sense of it,
Kurt Warner's dreams in time came true
within the NFL.

So as the Cards clash with the Steel,
who wins is not that big of deal.
What matters even more to me
is that Kurt's there to play.

Lunacy in the Land of Lincoln
Hot Rod left the race track of reason

Honest Abe can't rest in peace.
He's turning in his grave
and all because Blagojevich
is one deceptive knave.

The governor's a maniac.
Rich Daley thinks he's nuts.
He hears "impeach" and thinks it's fruit.
And now this Serb's in Dutch.

Hot Rod with his cold steely eyes
is demolition bound.
He's won the derby of deceit.
His trophy? Cuffed and bound.

He lost his job and faces trial
in weeks and months to come.
He's bound to be convicted
in the first degree as dumb.

The Land of Lincoln has been raped
by Blago-types too long.
It's high time these low-lifers pay
for all they've done that's wrong.

Stinkin thinkin -
In the Land of Lincoln -

That Rod Blagoyavich -
is a stitch -

He cant tell the truth from fiction -
Although he has pretty good diction -
the dudes voted him for eviction -
and perhaps later for conviction -

Maybe someday it will dawn on him that he really is out -
Till then though he is just gonna have doubt -
And keep tellin us what his health policy is all about -

Your out Rod
Your out Rod
Your out Rod

I wanna shout!
At 59 to 0 your no hero!

Your out, so make no mistake -
The vote was no fake -

It really is over -
And there is no hope in a four leaf clover -
You're gonna have to start over -

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
