Oedipus Gloats (for once and for all)

Well, of course it was
a stupid question, Daddy:
mean-spirited, too.

You can always trap a
frightened man with a stupid
question, and here’s why:

A victim always
has way too much respect for
brutality, and

none whatsoever
for his nimble human mind.
We can talk some more

when, at last, we meet –
assuming, as I always do,
that, someday, we will.
