Antigone

no pride on earth is free from a curse of heaven

ANTIGONE inspired by THE PLaY OF SOPHOCLES 

so tell me again about the curses

of odipus king of thebes!

shall heaven cry.

for my eyes are dry.

Antigone a rising star

so angelic in her

love .lost in the underworld so far.

Driven by her love for her brother.

Broke the law even further.

so mighty creon,

who will lonely live on.

you once stand on the edge of fate

looking downward at hell's gate.

the furies will take away

everything you cherish with no dismay.

for her beauty locked

away where the sun could

not come. enclosed

like a grave.

mighty Antigone so brave!

Soon your house will be filled,

with weeping and guilt.

your blindness,

will bring you darkness.

fate has brought

all your pride to dust.

corpse to corpse flesh to flesh

big words are always

punished. proud me in old age learn to be wise
