Fire Or Ice - Poem by Gert Strydom

Some say the world will end
when the Lord comes
and earth is speeding that way
to find its last day.

Whether by flames from God
or in a ice age
as some scientists say
where the planet will weather away,

ultra religious man doesn’t care
and choose suicide to go to paradise
with his finger
on the trigger of the missile
which might end it all
with a big bang.

[Explanation: Missile = nuclear \ biological\ chemical threat.]
