Paestum Haiku

One ancient civilization that built big temples (from blocks of stone) built bigger things (from thoughts and deeds).  Much bigger.

Paestum #1
|Big limestone columns
|sang silent hymns to honor
|sleazy pagan gods.

Paestum #2
|Old Greek thoughts and deeds
|built bigger things than temples.
|Like democracy.
