    dotsMy Name Ain't Oedipusdots
    -------------------------------------------


    A sphinx once asked me,
    "What has four legs in the morning,
    Two in the evening,
    And three at night?"

    "Man", I replied

    I chuckled lightly unto myself,
    My cheeks rosy with glee.

    "I wouldn't smirk so," Insisted the sphinx
    Upon my whimsical smile.
    "The last guy to answer my riddle
    Killed his father and married
    His mother."

    The sphinx turned and laughed.

    I turned and grimaced...


    Note to reader: My mother died
    Years ago, so I could not
    Have married her...
    However, I haven't seen my sister
    In years.

    Is it normal for children to have six toes?

      Ha ha, this is humorous and witty. I'm not familiar with Oedipus but this reminds me of a southern joke about marrying into family. Which we DO NOT do by the way. LOL.

      This poem is orriginal. I like the flow and the technique you used to make your points. The illusion to Oedipus didn't hurt much either. What were you really going for in this poem?
