Five years ago two towers fell.
Four planes (like bullets) unleashed Hell.
One nation (fractured) under God
fell to its knees in prayer.
Ground Zero found us hand in hand
without the means to understand
how terrorists could rob us blind
and steal our innocence.
They looted unsuspecting lives
who tried in vain to just survive.
Those heartless, evil, godless thieves
killed thousands in one day.
But since that time they've stolen more.
Like brave young soldiers felled by war.
And peace of mind we had in spades
just sixty months ago.
And yet that peace can be regained,
if we refuse to focus blame
on anyone except those thugs
who hate the land we love.
United States, oh let us be
united, bound to all agree
that we are strongest when we fight
a common enemy.

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.
