Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction
ice Is also great
And would suffice.
This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.
T. S. Eliot
