I AM a news junkie. I must have my fix.
I love 60 Minutes and all those loud ticks.
I catch the Today Show as each day begins
and then I switch over to watch CNN.
Then in my Tribeca while driving to work,
I must hear Paul Harvey or I go berserk.
Alerts on my laptop prompt late breaking news.
I have to click on them. We addicts must use.
I spend coffee breaks with the front page and more.
And while at the urinal I scan b-ball scores.
It's All Things Considered that's on en route home.
That NPR format's like gnawing a bone.
When dinner is over I watch Larry King
and Anderson what's-his-name's 360 thing.
It's bad. It's outlandish. It's out of control.
I pig-out on headlines but never get full.
|PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
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.
