"Here comes the king in person --carrying in his arms, if it's right to speak of this, a clear reminder that this evil comes not from some stranger, but his own mistakes."
"Aiii--mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death. You see here, all in one family--the killer and the killed. Oh the profanity of what I planned. Alas, my son, you died so young--a death before your time."
"Aiii… aaiii… you're dead... gone-- not your own foolishness but mine."
"Alas, it seems you've learned to see what's right-- but far too late.
The chorus leader says this and is stating that the death of Haemon was Creon's fault and no one else's. The chorus leader explains that it was Creon's own fault and he brought it upon himself.
"Aaiiii… I've learned it in my pain. Some god clutching a great weight struck to my head, throwing down and casting underfoot what brought me joy. So sad... so sad... the wretched agony of human life.
Creon says this because he realizes that his own plan killed his only son. Creon takes responsibility for Haemon's death, as he should.
"My lord, you come like one who store up evil, what you hold in your arms and what you'll see before too long inside the house."
Creon proclaims his sorrow towards the loss of his son that was the fault of his own, while the messenger states that Creon has finally learned what is right but not soon enough.
"What's that? Is there something still more evil then all this?"
Creon explains that his original plan that was based off of human law, but in the end it only brought him sadness and great suffering instead of the joy it had given him because everything had seemed to be going his way.
The messenger arrives to wear Creon is found weeping over Haemons dead body. The messenger informs Creon that more evil and sadness has been brought upon him and his family.
Creon says this in response to the messenger showing that he may not be able to take much more of this evil.
