I Herd the Shoppers

I herd the shoppers with this rhyme
in hopes they still may find the time
to focus on a precious gift
not found in stores but Heaven sent.

I herd the shoppers at the mall
corralling them so they'll recall
the meaning of this holy time
is more than standing in a line.

I herd the shoppers one by one
who run t'ward bargains almost gone.
My aim is to prevent regret
that's found by adding to one's debt.

I herd the shoppers on their way
t'ward undermining Christmas Day.
Like cattlemen out on the range
my efforts may seem harsh and strange.

I herd the shoppers with the goal
of helping lift the weary soul
who spends and spends without regard
for shopping with a credit card.

tune: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

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.

"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
