After Death

Now while my lips are living
Their words must stay unsaid,
And will my soul remember
To speak when I am dead?

Yet if my soul remembered
You would not heed it, dear,
For now you must not listen,
And then you could not hear.

what is belloc referring to when he says 'your crumbling sty'?
The old religion did not die out but marched silently hand in hand with the new religion the Romans brought to Britain and which is more commonly referrred to as Christianity
