A Value-added Veto_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Arnold Schwarzenegger weighs in on traditional marriage
At last the Terminator's back.
He killed that recent bill
that would have let a Jeremy
get married to a Phil.
Although the legislation passed
allowing gays to wed,
the Governor enforced his will
and vetoed it instead.
I'm grateful for this muscle man
who leveraged his own weight
so marriage won't be undermined
within the Golden State.
And yet the jury still is out
across the USA
as pressure mounts to let Diane
exchange vows with Danae.
The next few years will no doubt find
our nation scarred by strife
when values claimed for centuries
are stabbed as with a knife.
It's one thing to grant equal rights
to same sex liaisons,
but calling such husband and wife
is nothing less than wrong.

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.
