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.

A good meditation on an affliction. I had 20% hearing in my left ear for over a year - and then it shot back up in one strange moment almost to to 85%. It is irritating and humiliating - sometimes you just want to be off along so you; lre not saying WHAT all the time.
