P is for all your pieces separated and spread
A is for the Acropolis the mount on which you are built.
R is for the Return of all those pieces still in foreign lands
Still held in foreign hands so the jigsaw of the re-build still is in- complete.
T is for the time you have endured the rape and neglect within powerful minds
Those who wheel the power of keeping your pieces apart.
H is for the hope within our hearts for a truthful conclusion of your story so far.
The one which sees all your pieces returned to the Acropolis museum.
The purpose-built home for all those fragments to be viewed near where you sit.
E is for the energy, endurance, and the exuberance which is evoked at the sight of seeing you
lit up in lights or shining with the sun, that special Attica light.
N is for the names which hold your story aloft and right
O is for your originality which the Western World copied many times.
N is for the never-ending push to bring all your pieces home. Back to the Acropolis
And the Attica light. parthenon
