    So you, O nameless Duchess who die young,
    Meet death somewhat lovingly
    And I am filled with a pity of beholding skulls.
    There was no pride like yours.

    The poisoned rat in the wall
    Cuts through the wall like a knife,
    Then blind, drying, and small
    And driven to cold water,
    Dies of the water of life....
    —Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    His pain was too great. He begged me for the simple mercy of death. And I could do nothing else but help him leave a world that had become a sleepless, tortured nightmare to him.
    Robert D. Andrews, and Nick Grindé. Dr. John Garth (Boris Karloff)
