Mourning: Act 3 - Scene 2



Hassan Nasrallah
Let’s sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings…
Fighter 1
Who is he talking about?
Fighter 2
Commander Badreddine who’s just been martyred in Syria.
Fighter 1
I see. But isn’t he exaggerating a little. After all, the man was a fucking asshole. I mean he was sexting my neighbor’s wife from the “battlefield” all the time. I doubt he ever had a chance to actually fight. He let husband do all that. I mean the man was fighting under him, how sick is that?
Fighter 2
How do you know all this?
Fighter 1
She showed me some of his… messages. We’re sorta having an affair.
Fighter 2
Doesn’t that make you an asshole as well?
Fighter 1
That may be. But you’ll never hear anyone speaking about me as a king, even if I were martyred.
Fighter 2
Yeah, I know. I guess you and I are more like “close the wall up with our Shia dead” types.
Fighter 1
Which is why I say “fuck it.”
