Time's Man, Facebook's Face

Time's Man, Facebook's Face
A poetic profile of Mark Zuckerberg

The face of Facebook is on Time
and thus the subject of this rhyme.
The status of Mark Zuckerberg
is clear for all to see.

But not his skin. He's twenty-six.
His baby-face contends with zits.
Time's man for this year is a kid,
but smart. I kid you not.

His profile page speaks for itself
with education, fame and wealth.
This prodigy may seem a nerd,
but he has countless friends.

Mark's made his mark (and billions too)
and made it fun for me and you
to reconnect with long-lost chums
we haven't seen in years.

And yet I wonder, Mr. Z,
in spite of your celebrity
(behind those eyes that rarely blink)
are you alive to life?

Yes, Virginia, There's a God
Affirming the Almighty's Existence at Christmas

Yes, Virginia, there's a God.
Ask Utah. She believes.
But Washington and Oregon?
They aren't so sure it seems.

In the Bible Belt belief's a cinch.
In New England self is king.
Where pilgrims landed faith is rare.
Reason's the main thing.

But reason bows to mystery.
It must. We aren't that smart.
Dear Lord, Your ways defy our grasp.
We sing "How Great Thou Art."

We also sing "Joy to the World"
because You sent Your Son.
That silent night so long ago
Your greatest work was done.

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
