Lunch Break


Oedipus Song


Oedipus: The cresting road to Thebes I strode.

Two wounded feet my primal load.

My true father’s touch — a goad

This shepherd boy repulsed, there know’d.


Chorus of Angels: Unbound!


Oed.: The Sphinx’s tale once by me shorn,

The state ingratiated. My horn

The matrilineal sheath suborned.

Three future eclipsed stars were born.


Chor.: Unchecked!


Oed.: To nefarity I gave my awl.

Such peerless orbits’ obits scrawled

In jellied blood did scald

One face. Three maws. Two mauled.


Chor.: Unmasked!


Oed.: The road to Colonus we cobbled.

The good girl led, after whom I hobbled.

Righteousness my wasted force redoubled.

Iam requiescam, ne’er more troubled.


Chor.: Untasked!
