"it's an ill wind that blows no good"
Wiktionary states the saying is based on the premise that, when something is bad, someone else will usually benefit. However, it must be very bad, when nobody at all benefits.
His lizard eyes peep out
above puffy cheeks.
His words blow hot and hateful,
like a wildfire that torches
everything in its path
to scorched earth.
He is an angry wind indeed,
Nothing good rides the currents
of this ill wind.
