High School Musical
Have you seen High School Musical?
It's really quite the rage.
No, not the one in which your kids
auditioned for the stage.

I'm thinking of those Disney flicks
There's movie 1 and 2.
They're rated G for really GOOD.
Like cookies and cold moo.

The dancing moves are synched and smooth.
The plot is squeaky clean.
As ego trips a boy named Troy
(and envy turns him green),

he stumbles but he doesn't fall.
Stands up for what is right.
He dances with his base desires,
but bolts when conscience bites.

These Disney Channel movies are
refreshingly quite fresh.
Perhaps they signal changing trends.
Would you agree, John Tesh?

They teach kids morals, model skill
and prove you can have fun
by hanging with a group of friends
who don't need drugs or guns.

Greg - I totally agree! Thanks for putting your poetic spin on this one. Send it to Disney! Hopefully, they will stay the course.

Great! It appears that Roy Disney's revolt over Eisners' revolting philosophies and more general reform winds may yet have wider influence.

We'll know we've turned the ship around when the academic poets give up on their exclusive personal entertainments and readopt verse.

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.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
