Do you know ...

I sit in one of the dives
On Fifty-second Street
Uncertain and afraid
As the clever hopes expire
Of a low dishonest decade.

Opening lines of the poem by W.H. Auden,
entitled "September 1, 1939"

Do you know that World War IV has begun? You are in it, right now. It is around you. You can fight, you can run, you can capitulate, you can surrender. The choice is yours and the reality is the future. You cannot escape the reality.
