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. -Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in virtue,
Some say in vice.
From what debauchery I’ve lived,
I hold with those who favor sin.
But if I could rebuild it twice,
I think that I would not debate
To say that for construction vice
Is also great
And could suffice.
