Mercer Island Pastor/Poet Pens Stanzas Supporting Seahawks

The Rev. Greg Asimakoupoulos wrote this poem in honor of the Seahawks NFL divisional playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome on Sunday, Jan. 13.


It's now the battle of the beaks.
 The Falcons host our Hawks.
 And while Atlanta claims top seed,
 young Russell Wilson rocks.

The Georgia Dome will be the scene
 where we will foul their nest
 and wing our way to victory
 by proving we are best.

This playoff game is for the birds
 whose cage is called "The Clink."
 Our Hawks are hungry for a win.
 In "Coke Town" they will drink!

And so 12th Man, let's don our blue
 awaiting Sunday's score.
 This is the year for which we've dreamed.
 Let's help our Seahawks soar!

--By Rev. Greg Asimakoupoulos
