Oedipus Complex

Oedipus the King lets Freud coin a term,

Oedipus Complex it is; a phrase devoid of charm!

They say it can happen anywhere, with any person,

D.H. Lawrence’s Sons and Lovers bears the frank confession!


As Sophocles has made us cry a lot,

The identical phenomenon we have got,

After being familiar with Freud’s invented phrase,

Something alarming and queer in any case!


The very term has given birth to two categories,


One does believe, the other merely worries!
