Hippolytus And Phaedra In Declining Orbits

          Hippolytus and Phaedra In Declining Orbits

Hippolytus and Phaedra, a Euripides sad story
Phaedra wants sex with Hippolytus, (her step-son)
She tries every trick in the book for her own glory

Hippolytus, illegitimate son of Theseus, (king of Athens)
Phaedra, his wife was not very nice 
Theseus wants his son dead for what he tried to do

Hippolytus, (sworn to chastity) plus, he wants men
Unjustly charged for compromising Phaedra
Banished by his dad

Died slowly from injuries brought on
In a bad decision
Incurred by a chariot collision   

Phaedra orbits in another world, from another planet
She hanged herself, which brought attempted incest to an end
Hippolytus travels in his own universe, he too is dead
