Who could have spun such a tale as this?
Oedipus or Orpheus.
Poor Oedipus blinded himself
Saw his wife and mother die.
While willing Orpheus’s love
became a shade before his eyes.
When looking ahead or
Looking back can turn
a heart to lead.
Nothing loving ever arises when
answers are proof that
You’ve lost all surprises.
So who could have spun such a tale as this?
I’m through tonight. I’ll let you guess.
