When the Saxon Begins to Hate

A short poem by Rudyard Kipling…

It’s too bad but it’s been building, this backlash against the illicit and illegal actions against civil order by people following their leaders like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, President Obama and Eric Holder as well as ISIS, ISIL, and al-Queda. A poem by Rudyard Kipling captures what’s going on in the minds of people inclined to follow the rules and the laws.

“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
til 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.”
