The Devil's Dictionary: End

by Ambrose Bierce
ENCOMIAST
ENOUGH

END

-n.

The position farthest removed on either hand from the Interlocutor.

The man was perishing apace
Who played the tambourine;
The seal of death was on his face —
'Twas pallid, for 'twas clean.
"This is the end," the sick man said
In faint and failing tones.
A moment later he was dead,
And Tambourine was Bones.

- Tinley Roquot
