Since St. Chris has been demoted,
drive more cautious and concerned.
There are ten brand new commandments.
that the Pope wants us to learn.
Do not worship what you're driving,
but take care of what you own.
Don't use cars to leverage power.
Don't drive talking on the phone.
Treat pedestrians as greater.
They deserve the right of way.
And be sure your eyes are open
if you feel inclined to pray.
Do not kill. Refrain from speeding.
Back seats aren't for making out.
Do not drive if you've been drinking.
This new list leaves little doubt.
Holy smoke! Replace your muffler.
Holy cow! This is no bull.
Oh, for Heaven's sake, be prudent.
Keep the rules. Don't be a fool.
Ten commandments. Not suggestions.
Each designed with us in mind,
so we won't be road-rage victims
or be driving blitzed and blind.

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.
