Gene Poole is the cause of all
the things 'bout me I hate:
My hair, my nose, my body shape,
my ears, my height, my weight.
And though I've never met Eugene,
I think he's pretty cruel.
Without my knowledge or consent
he deemed I'd be a Poole.
Although I work out all the time,
I'm blessed with ol' Gene's gut.
And just like all my relatives,
I've got his ample butt.
He robbed me of my thick black hair
and my unwrinkled skin.
He stole my runner-lean physique
and left a double chin.
It's Gene who found a way to loot
my body of its looks.
And based on what he stole from me,
I'd call that thief a crook.

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.
