The Bronx Cheers
But the jury is still out on this judge

So, who is this The Bronx cheers for?
It's Son-i-a So-to-may-or!
She is Hispanic, female, smart.
As PC as can be.

So will this woman be confirmed?
It seems most likely, but I've learned
that unhatched chickens sometimes die
in Washington, D.C.

Those leaderless Republicans
may hold out just to prove they can.
And if they do, Soto-may-or
won't be a V.I.P.

But, if Obama gets his way,
he'll find an Asian and a gay
so that our highest court
can one day sing Y. M. C. A.

Should this be our supreme concern?
That no niche groups feel dissed or burned?
I rather think the benchmark is...
Is this one qualifed?

And It Didn't Come to Pass
Attempting to digest North Korea's nuclear tests

Like diarrhea, North Korea's
claims are more than gas.
We are misled to buy the lie
their tests have come to pass.
Like diarrhea, North Korea
could strike without alarm.
And worse than simply stomach flu,
that would spell global harm.
Like diarrhea, North Korea
must be kept in check.
To just pretend that all is well
could blow us all to heck.
So what's our option to deter
the likes of Kim Jong Il?
Perhaps a missile whose warhead's
a Kaopectate pill.

It appears to me that this woman is as well qualified as anyone could be with her varied background in different level courts. I also like the fact that the President (don't like to call him Obama) was looking for someone with a life experience that would make her more empathetic with those from underprivileged situations. That sounds pretty Scriptural to me.

Great poem about North Korea, but let's not go it alone militarily. It would be another Vietnam!

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
