Things fall apart, the center 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
 Surely some revelation is at hand!
 Surely the second coming is at hand!

   --W. B. Yeats, "The Second Coming"
