That Alec Baldwin cell phone rant
is shameful proof that parents can't
abuse a child with their words
and think "No harm, no foul!"
Our children are not human pigs.
They are not goats (though they are kids).
And while they can be quite strong-willed,
they're worthy of our love.
Yes, sticks and stones can break our bones,
but ugly words inside our homes
can bruise the beauty of a child
and injure them for life.
You'd best be careful what you say.
Unguarded words can make you pay.
A temper tantrum on the phone
robbed Alec of his rights.

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.
