Hyde and Seek (the Illinois Version)_Greg Asimakoupoulos-The fall elections are anything but child's playWhat Henry Hyde's vacating
a guy named Roskam seeks.
He's running strong and confident
to claim that long-held seat.
His foe's a female veteran
who feels the war is wrong.
Ms. Duckworth quacks a liberal tune
some anti-Bush folk song.
For Roskam, freedom matters.
For Duckworth, tolerance.
For him, the bucks are raised in-state.
For her, they're East Coast funds.
The pundits of both parties
are focused on Chi-town.
A race for U. S. Congress there
has foreheads knit in frowns.
This campaign's a bellwether
of how the rest will go.
Will those who back the President
survive? We soon will know.

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.
