English term or phrase: Fair is foul and foul is fair (and the rest)
Fair is foul and foul is fair
Hover through the fog and filthy air
When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning or in rain? When the hurlyburly's done. When the battle's lost and won.
-That would be ere the set of sun.
-Where?
Upon the heath.
There to meet with Macbeth.

Polish translation:Zlem jest dobro, dobrem zlo...
Explanation:
This sounds close to the idiom: "All is fair in love and war," which, paraphrased, says, "Under tough circumstances, moral lines get blurred"
I suggest a simple translation because of the poetic nature of the text.

Not sure if you need help translating the entire fragment. Pls let me know.
