Imagine my frustration when I hear this being chanted as the sentry (just my luck that he’s less of an idiot the second time I try to bury Polynieces) leads me to receive my punishment from Creon:
When the laws are kept, how proudly his city stands!
When the laws are broken, what of his city then?
Never may the anarchic man find rest at my hearth,
Never be it said that my thoughts are his thoughts.
Why doesn’t anyone understand me?! A man’s eternal soul is at stake here!

I regret only that I didn’t establish a Facebook group first to garner support for my actions. I’m still new to this whole internet thing.

I would like to visit the underworld, just to make sure Polyneices is alright. I worry about his spirit. Is he at rest? Is he being punished for starting a civil war (however justified it might have been)? Has he made any friends down there? Knowing my Uncle Creon, I have a feeling I may be joining him soon.
Those sentries are such idiots. Creon really ought to hire men that can at least stay awake while they’re on duty, not that it would have mattered in the end. Creon is not strong enough to stand in my way!
1. Being my father’s daughter, and also his half-sister.
2. Ismene’s lack of a backbone.
3. Creon’s new law.
