I’ve yet to figure why so many people have this whole world ending thing. Something about Mayan cycles. Given that they went by a 52 year cycle and it was a lot of social control by the priestly class… Yeah. Okay. Sorry, I keep forgetting that reason has no place with that topic.

 

Still, as good a reason as any to share another of my favorite elegantly pessimistic poems.

 

Fire and Ice

by Robert Frost

 

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.

 

So what’s your vote, hatred or desire? I suppose it doesn’t really have to be an either/or question…
