Four Epigrams

Preachers speak so forcefully of chastity’s worth
that he wonders how anyone came to be upon the earth.

The plot was twofold in her scheming brains—
the plan to murder and the place for the remains.

All of those selfies reminded her, in her old age,
of all the life wasted trying to get “likes” on a page.

Where Oedipus began he found his end,
a consummate doom he could not apprehend.
