All Over

In an alcove of a town house a great man lay dying. In the anteroom, awaiting his death are his wife, his mistress, his best friend, his feckless son and daughter. An elderly physician and a nurse ammend the family portrait, while newsmen eager for the latest updates and television crews clamour off stage. They who stand the deathwatch recollect past loves, rekindle old wars and await word that it is “all over.”
