Well, That’s That.

by matttbastard

Take up the White Man’s burden–
The savage wars of peace–
Fill full the mouth of Famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought.

At least 2015.” In other words, ‘surrender’ is not an option. Get ready for some quality Kabuki in ’08, brethren.

  1. Whilst in an interweb debate with a bona fide “defender of the Canadian empire” over our involvement in Afghanistan, I responded by simply posting that poem, in its entirety. I believe his reaction was something along the lines of “don’t quote me f**king poetry, let me know when you’re ready to argue from facts.” DND-sanctioned, media-spun, Tory-fied facts, no doubt.
