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.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) English writer
“The White Man’s Burden,” st. 1 (1899)
