A Poetic Portrait of a Patriot

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: October 23, 2021

Celebrating the life of a remarkable leader…

Colin’s cancer left him weak,
but in the end COVID would speak
to claim a General strong yet meek
who knew few enemies.

This inner-circle centrist’s voice
provided options when a choice
was hard to choose above the noise
of disagreeing friends.

Our nation is a better place
because this man of measured grace
gave common sense a needed face.
Peace to his memory!
