Look Who's Turning Sixty!
Look Who's Turning Sixty!_Greg Asimakoupoulos-The baby boomers reach metal age
Sixty years ago this year
a boom in babies made it clear
that while the war had come and gone
there was no peace at night.

A longing for her ample breast
kept mothers from nocturnal rest
as babies born in '46
cried out like drunks for drink.

And now those milk-fed babes are old
with silver hair and teeth of gold.
Because there's lead within their pants,
we call them metal age.

Both Bush and Clinton lead the way
as thousands join the club each day
to face those sixty sticks of wax
that grace a birthday cake.

This is The Donald's Six-Oh year
and Dolly Parton, even Cher.
I guess that helps us realize
that sixty still is young.

And yet the speed at which life flies
reminds us that the year we'll die
is closer than it's been before.
So we had best prepare.

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.

"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
