Default White Nationalist Poems by Rudyard Kipling

THE BEGINNINGS
(1915, published 1917)

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

THE SONG OF THE WHITE MEN (1899)

Now this is the cup the White Men drink
When they go to right a wrong,
And that is the cup of the old world's hate —
Cruel and stained and strong.
We have drunk that cup — and a bitter, bitter cup —
And tossed the dregs away.
But well for the world when the White Men drink
To the dawn of the White Man's day!

Now this is the road that the White Men tread
When they go to clean a land —
Iron underfoot and levin overhead
And the deep on either hand.
We have trod that road — and a wet and windy road —
Our chosen star for guide.
Oh, well for the world when the White Men tread
Their highway side by side!

Now, this is the faith that the White Men hold
When they build their homes afar —
"Freedom for ourselves and freedom for our sons
And, failing freedom, War."
We have proved our faith — bear witness to our faith,
Dear souls of freemen slain!
Oh, well for the world when the White Men join
To prove their faith again!

WHITE MAN'S BURDEN
(February 12, 1899, "McClure's Magazine")

Take up the White Man's burden —
Send forth the best ye breed —
Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild —
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man's Burden —
In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain.
To seek another's profit,
And work another's gain.

Take up the White Man's burden —
The savage wars of peace —
Fill full the mouth of famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch Sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hope to nought.

Take up the White Man's burden —
No tawdry lie of kings.
But toil of serf and sweeper —
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter,
The roads ye shall not tread,
Go make them with your living,
And mark them with your dead.

Take up the White Man's burden —
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard —
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light: —
" Why brought ye us from bondage,
" Our loved Egyptian night! "

Take up the White Man's burden —
Ye dare not stoop to less —
Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloak your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples
Shall weigh your Gods and you.

Take up the White Man's burden —
Have done with childish days —
The lightly proffered laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years,
Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers!

Default Kipling poem: The Stranger.

Here's an even better one by Kipling: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Stranger_(Kipling)
He sums up the true meaning of "racism" here.
That link is a dud. This one works: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-stranger/
MUST READ!

I've been a Kipling fan since elementary school.
Back then we still read books authored by self-acknowledged White men (ye gods, I'm getting old!)!
Here's a complete collection of his poems.
http://www.poetryloverspage.com/poet...pling_ind.html
As well as one of his greatest adventure stories!
Brother to a prince; fellow to a begger should he be found worthy.

The movie version, The Man Who Would Be King, directed by John Huston and starring Sean Connery and Michael Caine is a WN classic!
Enjoy!

I had to do an essay on the White Man's burden back in high school. My teacher bullshitted everyone into think its an imperialist poem and had little to do with race (Lulz). I wrote it as I read it (There's even a mention of the Jew there if you read carefully) and didn't do that well on it because it wasn't in line with the standard response. But what the hell? I am not going to lie about what I see 2+2=4 no matter what they say.

I went through a similar experience with the song "Behind Blue Eyes."

That poem "The Stranger" is simply classic, it makes me despise the education I received that I haven't been exposed to it before just now.
