Axe Time, Sword Time

The Norks say they have tested an atomic bomb.

All I can think of right now is how Odin, troubled by growing portents that the Age of the Aesir was ending and Ragnarok was fast approaching, discovered that the oracles of the Wise Woman and Mimir's Head, rather than giving advice how to avert the inevitable Twilight of the Gods, could now only tell him, over and over, the following:

Axe time, sword time,
Ere the world end;
Wind time, wolf time;
Do you not know more now
Than you knew then?
