Where Prince Meets Pauper_Greg Asimakoupoulos-A reflection of the Incarnation in South Asia
Former Oval Officers
wept where tidals waved.
Bush and Clinton watched in horror
while their courage caved.
What they saw exceeded all
that they thought they'd see.
Tragic sights beyond belief.
Homeless orphaned babies cling
to those who reach out.
Parents robbed of children lost
wander (dazed) about.
Treeless landscapes raped by force
hide its buried dead
while those victims still alive
pray for daily bread.
Thank you, God, for George and Bill.
They left comfort zones
so to taste the bitterness
of those damned, alone.
And that smacks of what You did
when in Christ you came.
Visiting our ravaged world,
you embraced our shame.

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.
