The Stranger


The Stranger within my gate.

He may be true or kind,

But he does not talk my talk -

I cannot feel his mind.

I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,

But not the soul behind.


The men of my own stock

They may do ill or well,

But they tell the lies I am wonted to,

They are used to the lies I tell.

And we do not need interpreters

When we go to buy and sell.


The Stranger within my gates,

He may be evil or good,

But I cannot tell what powers control -

What reasons sway his mood;

Nor when the Gods of his far-off land

Shall repossess his blood.


The men of my own stock,

Bitter bad they may be,

But, at least, they hear the things I hear,

And see the things I see;

And whatever I think of them and their likes

They think of the likes of me.


This was my father's belief

And this is also mine:

Let the corn be all one sheaf -

And the grapes be all one vine,

Ere our children's teeth are set on edge

by bitter bread and wine.


Rudyard Kipling

1908


Right now the situation is what it is. We must just get on with the basic hard work and not despair. I do not want to hear any moaning minnies with the old "It is too late to do anything" routine. I have heard it so many times from the 'diesofts' and utterly pathetic who will attach themselves and then get in our way.

Donate to Todd so he spends it on booze and gets himself banged up again for a drunken brawl.
