This is the Way the World Ends – “On The Beach” – Nevil Shute 

April 10th, 2011 · No Comments · Humanism, Nuclear Weapons, Poetry

In this last of meeting places
We grope together
And avoid speech
Gathered on this beach of the tumid river…
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper. —T. S. Eliot
