Festivals of Fire and Ice

A quick comparison of Iran in March 2006, Harbin in January 2005, London in February 2006, and a cartoon about dalmations (to no overall point, they just fit the poem).

(With apologies to 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 know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
