Gas Pain Blues_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Lamenting the high cost of filling up
I get gas and I feel awful.
Real discomfort. Chronic ouch.
And that hurt within in my wallet
makes me grumpy as a grouch.
I feel pain as I stand pumping
with that nozzle in my hand.
I spend more than half a hundred
just to fill my minivan.
There's a knot within my stomach
and an ache within my head.
I'm a hostage to the Saudis
every time my car gets fed.
Spinning numbers leave me dizzy.
Every time they stop, I lose.
It's just like the slots in Vegas.
It's a case of gas pain blues.

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.
