The 20th century learned from its forebears:
Robert Frost's "Fire and Ice"
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in 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.
Oblate of St. Benedict
