Help for a patriot distressed, a spotless spirit hurt,
Help for an honourable clan sore trampled in the dirt!
From Queenstown Bay to Donegal, O listen to my song,

    This is an absolutely amazing poem. Every line strummed the beat of meter like a song to me, yet the meat of it is so very intense. I would like to know more about this poem. It sounds as though a thug hired men to intimidate an Irish fellow, but the men killed him instead. And the instigator was cleared because his intention was not murder. And if I'm not mistaken he went on to join British Parliament. Shocking story and I wonder if it is true. Kipling is fastly becoming one of my favorite poets. (Report) Reply

    Kipling never went to prison for his words all in the name of poetry. Indeed we are not ruled by murderers but only by their friends. We hope for better future in God's Kingdom. (Report) Reply

    Cognizant there will be hell to pay for this one (since even I love 'Twice Told Tales') , although perhaps I heard something like it somewhere. So forgive me if it sounds like something else, or try to forgive me anyway...


    READING ONLY KIPLING

    At the balmy cliffs of Dover
    Not just once but over over
    Never reading ever others
    Ever reading as your druthers
    Kipling only cause you favor
    Only him and never waver
    Reading only Kipling ever
    Thinking reading other verses
    Claims the clowny crown of curses
    Not just once but over over
    At the balmy cliffs of Dover
    Hearing only Kipling ever.
    Reading only Kipling purely
    Is the cure for Kipling surely.

    Pretty savage whatever the rights and wrongs of the case! Today there would be a libel case. Only a poem could say what Kipling says. (Report) Reply
