His rivals used to say quite a bit
That as a monarch he was most unfit.
But still in all they had to admit
That he loved his mother.
Yes, he loved his mother like no other,
His daughter was his sister and his son was his brother.
One thing on which you can depend is,
He sure knew who a boy's best friend is.- Tom Lehrer, Oedipus Rex
Ahhhhhh. I never realized what a caring, sensitive human being he really is. I guess even pious thugs can have a heart! (hat tip: Iraq the Model)
