Remembering Joe Lieberman_Greg Asimakoupoulos-The Connecticut senator is a casualty of warThe fall campaigns are heating up
as conflicts brew and then erupt.
There's hatred lobbed like hand grenades
by those denouncing Bush.
What once was in Iraq alone
can now be found right here at home.
The front lines are dividing us.
The war's become a war.
Joe Lieberman's a casualty
thanks to the likes of Hillary
who take their aim
and shoot their mouths
at those who back our boys.
And all the while our troops fight on
confused by those who wag their tongues
creating sound bites for the news
that question freedom's fight.
Have we forgot what got us there?
To combat terror everywhere?
Perhaps that's why support once voiced
has blown apart to bits.
It's time insurgents dropped their arms
lest troop morale sustain more harm
and party politics succeed
in slaughtering goodwill.

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.
