Coup de grâce


The French expression coup de grâce (in english Finishing blow) means "death" with intent to end the suffering of wounded creature. The duet "Coup de grace" refers to the doubts of accepting a deliberate intervention undertaken with the express intention of relieving an intractable suffering without possibility of cure. Is it really possible to "gentle death, sweet, easy," without pain, to abbreviate very large and painful agony of someone?
