LUNAR PYTHON'S LIFE OF BORGAN, SCENE ONE
Scene: A small hut in the Katarina Zone
Three priests of Althena enter a small house in an alley of the holy city. A ratbag of a woman looks over a baby crib. She shrieks as they enter.
Mama Borgan: Who are you?
Priest #1: We are three priests.
Priest# 2: We are astrologers. We have come from Pentagulia.
Mama Borgan: Is this some kind of joke?
Priest #1: We have come to see the infant.
Priest #2: We must pay homage to him.
Mama Borgan: Homage??? You're drunk! It's disgusting! Out! Out!
Priest #3: No, no.
Mama Borgan: Comin' in here, first thing in the morning with some tale about Pentagulian fortune tellers. Get out! Go praise someone else's brat!
Priest #1: We were lead by a star.
Mama Borgan: A bottle, more like. Out!
Priest #2: We must see him. We've brought presents.
Mama Borgan: Out!
Priest #3: Cookies, donuts, canolis....
Mama Borgan: Well why didn't you say so? Well, c'mon in, he's over here. What is a canoli, anyway?
Priest #3: An Italian desert.
Mama Borgan: Oh, I see. So you're astrologers, eh? What sign is he?
Priest #2: Capricorn.
Mama Borgan: Capricorn, eh? What are they like?
Priest #2: He is one of The Four Heroes of Zophar, our true savior.
Priest #1: Ruler of Neo-Vane.
Mama Borgan: So that's Capricorn, is it?
Priest #1: No, no, just him.
Mama Borgan: Oh, I was going to say, otherwise there'd be a lot of them.
(The priests get on their knees)
Priest #1: By what name are you calling him?
Mama Borgan: Borgan.
(The priests mumble some prayers)
Mama Borgan: Do you do a lot of this, then?
Priest #1: This what?
Mama Borgan: This praising.
Prests: No, no, no.
Mama Borgan: Oh! Well if you're ever in the neighborhood again, do pop in. (The PRIESTS rise.) And thanks a lot ofr the cookies and donuts, but...don't bother about the canolis next time. Thank you...goodbye. (To BORGAN) Well, weren't they nice? Out of their bloody minds, but still...
