The King of Pop and The King of Kings

That love fest for Michael
was quite the phenom
with tributes and music
that went on and on.

A song from Mariah.
A Magic review.
Both Smokey and Usher
gave heart-shards some glue.

A poem from Maya.
A sermon by Al.
And words from Mike's brothers
and his little gal.

I loved hearing "Soon"
by the Crouch Gospel Choir.
And that wee lad from England?
His voice sure inspired!

But what really moved me
were Pastor Smith's words
that some probably countered
as wrong or absurd.

He said, "Even Michael,
the beloved King of Pop,
must bow to King Jesus
now that his life has stopped."

No matter our color,
our status or fame,
when death comes to claim us
there's only one name

we all will acknowledge
as Lord and as King.
And it's not Mohammad
or Buddha or Ming.

Yes, billions heard Lucius
declare what is true.
But will they serve Jesus
before death? Will you?

* based on Philippians 2: 9-11
 
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
      and gave him the name that is above every name,
 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
      in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
      to the glory of God the Father.

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.

"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
