Jesus isn't Mel's sole passion.
Seems he has another thirst.
His rye humor isn't funny.
Guess the bottle's Gibson's curse.
Having tripped, the star's now tarnished.
Critics of his faith take aim.
Mel is now an easy target.
Such a fall has left him lame.
But before you start to judge him,
look inside your "righteous" gown.
Chances are you have your issues
that caused Christ his thorny crown.
Bathed in blood, we are forgiven.
Still we're flawed and prone to sin.
Every day we need God's power
to resist the beast within.
So before you act so smugly,
pray for Mel. Admit your need.
There but by God's grace we stumble
tripped by ego, lust and greed.

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.
