Morning's Still Broken_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why U.S. authorities must dog the likes of Cat Stevens
Cat Stevens' records
back when our world was crazy yet sane.
recall cold shoulders
when they returned home bloodied and maimed.
Morning's still broken,
moon shadows faded.
Oh, very young, our world's still at war.
There is no peace train.
Terror on airplanes
means Yusuf Islam is welcomed no more.
Crescent moon shadows
all Muslim converts,
still not all converts play terror's game.
But those on watch lists
really are high risks
and must be de-clawed if not deplaned.
Old Carl Sandburg
pictured the night fog
like cat feet stalking those it deems prey.
So without warning
terror comes storming
quietly cloaking those in its way.
We must be leery
of those who follow
extremist leaders bent on our doom.
Sometimes we error
but that's the cost of forestalling gloom.
* the above lyrics can be sung to the tune for "Morning Has Broken"

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.
