Fire and Ice! ! ! Poem by MaddiiAnne O'Leary


I got the inspiration for this poem from a quote called 'Fire and Ice.'

This world will eventually come to an end.
But will we get to choose how it does?
What would you choose?
Fire or Ice?

Fire would burn everything.
It would be a fast death.
It would wipe out the whole world.
But would it be more humane than Ice?

Ice would slowly kill every living thing; Human or Plant.
Ice would chill everything to the very centre of their core.
Ice would take a while to wipe out this civilisation.
But is this more humane than Fire?

Neither would be humane;
But what would you rather?
Fire or Ice?
