    Saint, do you weep? I hear amid the thunder
    The Fenian horses; armour torn asunder;
    Laughter and cries. The armies clash and shock,
    And now the daylight-darkening ravens flock.
    Cease, cease, O mournful, laughing Fenian horn!
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    That even an apocalypse can be made to seem part of the ordinary horizon of expectation constitutes an unparalleled violence that is being done to our sense of reality, to our humanity.
