The Evening Blues_Greg Asimakoupoulos-How we are losing the war we won The Evening Blues
by Greg Asimakoupoulos

The nightly news is suffocating
(like a noose around your neck).
In Iraq the body count is getting out of hand.
By ones and by twos
our soldiers keep dying
and I keep trying to understand
why Hussein eludes us
and his countrymen hate us
and whose saying what and to whom.
It's a damn shame.
It's doom and gloom
and the room for debate
about this war
is beginning to approximate
the size of one
of Saddam's ransacked palaces.
Even though we've supposedly won,
lives are still lost
as the fighting goes on.
It's a war that is killing our President's hopes
of living in the White House another four years.
It's a black plaque
for which there appears
to be no cure.
It's an epidemic in which
winners and losers
(whoever they are)
ironically both bleed red.
The evening news on CNN
is more like the evening blues.

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
