Trump and the second coming

Popularity 5Viewed 6684 times 2016-11-10 10:30 |System category:Life| Trump, Future, disasters


I have an instinctive feeing deep down that some very bad times lie ahead. I hope I am just being foolish.

The Middle East, ISIL, Putin, DPRK stupidity, Brexit.... and now Trump.

I keep thinking of the first stanza of a poem by W.B.Yeats; "The second coming."

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed,
and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Ah...... time for coffee and cake.

TedM: I fear that you have not understood the poem. The second coming is not the coming of Jesus.... quite the opposite. It is the return of evil or Satan.  ...

    You are clearly an intelligent and educated person with sound opinions. Most of this blog concerned the situation in North Korea and the threats it poses, particularly with reference to Trumps actions. I would welcome your comments on this, but please avoid insults. They are not constructive or sensible.
