Excerpt of the poem, “The White Man’s Burden”
By Rudyard Kipling, February 1899
Take up the White Man’s burden--
Send forth the best ye breed--
Go send 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…
