Sleepless in Seattle
Sleepless in Seattle_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why more and more snorers need surgeryMy friend Omar has apnea.
So even when he naps, Mia,
his wife is quick to jab him
so he'll stir and start to breathe.

Each night he struggles, gags and snores.
It is a war to end all wars.
He battles just to get a breath.
Each morning he's worn out.

"I'm never rested," Omar sighs.
"I'm pooped the moment that I rise.
No matter when I go to bed,
I can't sleep long enough."

"You've got a floppy uvula.
That's why you're feeling weak and blah."
His doctor wants to operate,
but Omar isn't sure.

"Why don't I try that nighttime mask?
Won't that thing work?" my good friend asks.
"Or will it cause my wife to think
that I'm an alien?"

"I think it will," Doc Jones replied.
"According to MY sleepless bride,
when I put on my C-pap face
she thought I'd come from Mars."

And so surrend'ring to the knife
my friend submitted to his wife
and in the process helped his heart
and woke a rested man.

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.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
