Let´s start by a simple poem (Robert Frost´s Fire and Ice)
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.
