Temple to a Newer God

On seeing the Orthodox church in the grounds of the Acropolis, I thought how faiths can be passing fancies, and in a future age even Christianity will be a curiosity and an antiquity.

Where once they worshipped Apollo
Zeus, other Gods and Pan
There now stands the Church to the Son of God
Made flesh, and made man.

This land devout, for its faith is known
In its Orthodox variation
But once, and maybe yet, nearly communist did become
The entire Greek nation.

And should such happen, or atheism
In this dusty soil take hold
Archaic as the Pantheon maybe Jesus and the Saints
Such a story in time be told.
