Color It Chaotic_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Column debut.
In the Golden State
Gray Davis is blue
(and for good reason).
One-hundred-thirty-four greenhorn candidates
are attempting to run him out of town
by running for his office.
In the land of the silver screen
where movies are made,
political campaigns are created
in soap opera fashion.
In these Days of Our Lives,
All My Children are no longer willing
to simply be known as
The Young and The Restless.
From the bizarre to the ridiculous,
porn stars and actors,
bounty hunters and sumo wrestlers
think they are somehow qualified
to govern our nation's most populous state.
As in the days of the Judges,
no one is fazed by the circus-like ways
of those who lack judgment or sense.
While everyone does what is right in their own eyes,
He who sits in the Heavens laughs
at a scenario that is far from funny.

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.
