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.
You know, a lot of people used to think that the U.S. would fall in an epic nuclear conflict with Russia.. I read this for the first time in 7th or 8th grade, don't remember any more; anyways, fire obviously relates to violence, but ice can mean a lot of things.. i think in the case of the U.S. it will simply be apathy for our country and each other that gets us.. any thoughts?
-this just kinda popped into my head while reading a thread about people being too lazy to walk 20 feet to put carts away.. but the more I get into it, the more reasons I see Americans using to avoid exercise and interactions with other people...
