The Days Are Getting Shorter

The Days Are Getting Shorter
How much longer to the end?

The days are getting shorter.*
It's amazing. Quite absurd.
And all because of Chile
and the earthquake they endured..

That 8.8 explosion
deep within our planet's crust
was so strong its axis shifted.
And you wonder why the fuss.

Less daylight in just an instant.
Kind of scary, don't you think?
Could these natural disasters
mean that we are on the brink...?

The frequency with which we hear
of earthquakes, floods and war
gives us pause to humbly ponder...
"In God's game plan, what's the score?"

Will a Prius Win at Indy?
Toyota's problems are really accelerating

Will a Prius win at Indy?
They accelerate so fast.
Those hybrids are a safety risk 
(although they're great on gas).

"Give us a break!" Toyota pleads,
"We really aren't so bad.
Our cars (in time) will finally stop.
There's no use getting mad."

You kidding me? That car's unsafe.
You certainly recall
the countless vehicles at risk.
Too many hit the wall!

So, Mr. T, you'd best think fast
(just like your unbraked cars).
If you don't steer your company,
you'll end up behind bars.

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
