Good Night - The End
"Like a whirlwind I unfurled myself on the universe, I rampaged it. And I let such horror and finality out on anything I came across..."
Three Grim Reapers kill time in their dingy staff kitchen, grappling with the usual questions: “Who used my cup? Why is there never enough Milo? Is there anything to look forward to beyond this miserable present?”
