Today will never be the same
as Katie Couric trades her fame
from morning news to Rather-land
and 60 Minutes, too.
I think she hopes that CBS
will help her try to spell success.
And so she's leaving Ann and Al
to play the letter game.
It all began at UVA.
With cap and gown and her BA.,
she hoped to shape the broadcast world
and prove a woman could.
At NBC she lost her J,
but Katie really earned an A
by doing what she did with class
while entering our hearts.
With Bryant Gumbel, then Matt Lauer,
she proved (though short) she has the power
to stand up to the right wing fringe
with whom she disagrees.
And even though she has her foes,
a level-headed viewer knows
that Katie Couric has a gift
that cannot be ignored.
Let's raise a glass for Ms. KC.
For fifteen years on NBC,
for all she did to make Today
our early morning choice.
|PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
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.
