Just Another Word in the Dictionary - Apse

Apse n. a polygonal or semicircular recess terminating the choir or other portion of a church

not to be confused
with "lapse,"
an apse
is an absence
of scruples,
so that just anyone
can conclude anything,
the great irony
of the age of science:

Her apse allowed her
to declare victory
in lieu of the defeat
she actually faced,
because it played better
to her supporters
