Creon, you are trying to overthrow me. Maybe I should execute or banish you!
Chorus: We will always be loyal to you Oedipus.
Go to the Oracle and see for yourself
Don't hurt Creon, he is my brother. He wouldn't want to hurt you.
The prophet Tiresias condemned me.
Don't worry about the prophecy, there is no truth in that.
Jocasta, how do you know?
Because I know it's not you. The Delphic oracle told Laius he would be murdered by his son.
And because I left my child to die upon birth. Laius was murdered by thieves at the 3 way crossroads.
So does that mean I am adopted?
When I lived in Corinth, I heard that I was not the son of the King and Queen of Corinth. I went to the Oracle and it told me I would murder my father and sleep with my mother. When I fled Corinth, I killed a man at the crossroads in self defense.
