友人幫忙查了一下 "on the end" 解釋如下:
it's coming on / the end of August
it's coming / on the end of August
come on 是 to start
See Cambridge Dictionary
to start to happen or work
The heating comes on at six in the morning.

因此 It's coming on the end of August
是 it's the start of the end of August
Another summer's promise almost gone
因此沒有On the end這種文法。
論文可以寫: On the end of World War 2
On / the end of World War 2 = 論二戰的結束
On the end of World War 2 =\= At the end of World War 2參考資料： dictionary+internet+English idioms
