A Capitol Offense_Greg Asimakoupoulos-A prayer for the victims' families in D.C.Lord, once again a trigger squeeze
has brought a city to its knees
as senseless shootings claimed the lives
of those caught unaware.
They left their homes and went to work
without a clue that someone lurked
in that familiar Navy yard
in Washington D.C.
They kissed their mates not knowing that
they never would be coming back.
A Monday just like all the rest
would prove to be their last.
Please comfort these now numbed by grief.
God, You alone can bring relief
to families left to question why
those they loved are gone.

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.
