Epistrophe (e-pis’-tro-fee): Ending a series of lines, phrases, clauses, or sentences with the same word or words.

Your father is a loser. Your wife is a loser. Your son with the black hair is a loser. And YOU are a loser. And you give “loser” a bad name.  I’m going to start calling you “Last Place” to remind you, and everybody else, how far behind the human race you trail–no  integrity, no moral compass, no brains, no heart.
