Immortal time, grand cathedrals awed
The stage still awaits his entrance there
Of a god man seeks and humbly lauds
But who hasn’t come, or seems to care
Countless centuries has passed man by
There have been gods of every kind
A lot of them have lived in the sky
But mostly they live in man’s mind
Socrates and Homer practiced piety 
Homer wrote poems about the many
There were mythic gods of mythic deity
And no person saw or talked to any
Man still builds monuments with spires
Made to give rising souls a boost
Going upward to avoid hell’s fires
And for the occasional pigeon to roost
