In circles

The world goes around in silent circles.
What do they matter in the grand scheme of things
These little tragedies of Sophocles.
Theaters across the universe are jam-packed
with plays like these and mainly these
till the actors are down, wrinkled and cracked.
How is your thing different? Does it involve the gods?
Restive questions from the audience. Then it's announced.
"This one has lot of hope" and everyone applauds.
Hope is heavy on them after all these tragedies
But still, is an intoxicant with
a strong spell like the elixiric remedies.
