Tale of Oedipus

Oedipus came from an old family

of cruel fathers and insensitive sons

of paranoid mothers and crazy uncles

Oedipus cleared every exam

every training and every hurdle

but was a fool for women with pretty eyes

Oedipus fought the battle

and lost good friends

till he sailed home but got lost in a storm

Oedipus wandered the oceans

and the seas looking for dragons and sirens

while at home his home was crowded by fools

Till one day he arrived

Knife between his teeth and murder in his eyes

Oedipus claimed his home among the lies

Tale of Oedipus often told

Ancient tale very old

Modern twists but good as gold
