The Proud Prisoner_Greg Asimakoupoulos-A Close Look at the World's Most Infamous Convict
Although he's a prisoner,
Saddam remains proud
refusing to say he's done wrong.
The Butcher of Baghdad
still has loyal friends
and that's why this war is so long.
An arrogant tyrant,
Hussein remains rude
contesting a judge's request.
He's most unrepentant
and bent on revenge
toward those who have captured his best.
Let's pray no one springs him.
That's surely a threat.
There are those who want Saddam freed.
In spite of the ways that he plundered Iraq,
his victims resist liberty.
And yet we're committed
to do what we can
to give those Iraqis new hope.
The mad man who led them
and still thinks he does
might just as soon think he's the Pope.

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.
