Checking out other people’s political rallies, shouting things, calling each other names, people arrested. It all made me think of this.
Fire and Ice (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.
Hey Chicago, hey St Louis, calm your jets people. You’re falling for the biggest trick of all, that the person you elect will make a substantive difference.
