Little Oedipus - A true story

Little Oedipus

It was early morning,
the mother woke up the youngster
and between supplications, and prayers
to the god of earthquakes.
She dug her fingers into the sockets
of the little boys eyes

then opened the door
of the squalid household
and cast the little Oedipus,
with blood dripping down his face,
to grope about the paths of earth
announcing the end of the world.
