Kipling

"[Kipling] sees clearly that men can only be highly civilized while other men, inevitably less civilised, are there to guard and feed them." - George Orwell

The Complete Collection of Rudyard Kipling's Poems

You must read The Betrothed, The Virginity, Gunga Din, The Grave of the Hundred Head, If, and just for fun, The Female of the Species.

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
- The Young British Soldier -
