Mother Justice is Blind No More_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Right to Life Rulings Challenge Political Correctness These are days
to praise our Maker
(and thank our lawmakers).
In a culture
that is speeding
in the direction
of moral retardation,
the right to life
hasn’t been completely
left behind.
At least for now,
justice isn’t blind
when it comes to
the inalienable privileges
of those partially born
or partially alive.
Eyes closed to truth
have finally opened.
But for how long?
Isn’t it about time
Mother Justice’s blindfold
be untied for good?
Should parents need a lawyer
just to let their daughter live?
Should a fed-up husband be allowed
to keep his wife from food?
Should a mother
(enveloping a fully-formed baby)
be allowed to refuse delivery
of priority mail at the doorstep
while stamping “return to Sender”
on a love letter from Heaven?

P.S. No matter the hand
that we’ve been dealt,
life trumps death any day.

I take it that Greg didn't care much for the ethical ambiguities in my column.

I, on the other hand, do not care much for ethical ambiguities to become legal certainties on one side or the other.

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
