A Kingdom

A Kingdom
Ruled by two brothers
Slayed by one another

Lead by the rise of their Uncle
A man unforgiving
Who would see the death of his niece
Before the burial of his nephew

Antigone
The burial of her brother
Soon to be hers too by her own hands

Haemon
His loyalty to his father
Crashed away by his love for his wife
As he lays dead by her side

Ismene
Can only watch those before her
Since she was never meant to be remembered
As she could only watch time go

Erudycite
The wife of a man unforgiving
And a son crashed away by his love for his wife
Can do nothing but slice away her life

A Kingdom of death and tragedy
Needed to be left in the past
Along with Sophocles it’s writer
that continues to last
