John and Kate Plus Hate

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: June 28, 2009

The sad saga of a once big happy family…

Jon and Kate plus eight
means more than one full house.
To parent eight small active kids
might tempt you to get soused.

Jon and Kate plus weight
that TV stars must bear
make for a burden that will stoop
the strongest anywhere.

Jon and Kate plus hate
means vows once made won't last.
Without forgiveness for misdeeds,
the dye of breakup's cast.

Jon and Kate plus faith
could mend what's blown apart,
but only if they both submit
to Him who rules their hearts.

Jon and Kate, I hate the fact
that you two aren't now one.
Your eight deserve both dad and mom.
Please reverse what you've done.
