The Richest Kind_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Craving the coffee Mrs. Olson brewedMrs. Olson, brew the Folger's.
It's the richest kind.
Plus, I'm running out of Star bucks.
That place robs you blind.
At the Bucks the blends are costly.
You could lose your shirt.
And the beans they boast are bitter.
Ground, they taste like dirt.
Lattes, fraps and cappuccinos
seem to be the rage.
But, I miss the simple pleasures
of another age.
Who banned Yuban?
Where's Hills' Brothers?
Not at Maxwell's House!
"Sanka's not designer decaf!"
snooty housewives grouse.
Perk me up with no-frills coffee
like my grandpa sipped.
I don't need designer decaf
just to prove I'm hip.
Coffee black! No cream. No sugar.
Just a cup of Joe.
And I think his last name's Olson.
He's just great! You 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.
