C is for Chorus

 

We bend our knee to no one;

No one surrenders to us

 

Human players are tragic:

Even in our comedies, vicious

 

We bend our knee to no one;

No one surrenders to us

 

What we see can blind, but

Unlike Oedipus can’t self-maim

 

We bend our knee to no one;

No one surrenders to us

 

Our role is comment for you

Who attend our seeing-place

 

We bend our knee to no one;

No one surrenders to us

 

Like Antigone, we’re horrified

In forsaking our heroic dead

 

We bend our knee to no one;

No one surrenders to us

 

Cynics abandon Parnassus;

We will stay, the human voice

 

We bend our knee to no one;

No one surrenders to us
