\u00a0\nA poem that is very appropriate in this journal that explores cultural diversity.\n\u201cWe and They\u201d\u00a0\u00a0 by Rudyard Kipling\n\n\nFather, Mother, and Me\nSister and Auntie say\nAll the people like us are We,\nAnd every one else is They.\nAnd They live over the sea,\nWhile We live over the way,\nBut \u2013 would you believe it? \u2013 They look upon We\nAs only a sort of They !\nWe eat pork and beef\nWith cow-horn-handled knives.\nThey who gobble Their rice off a leaf,\nAre horrified out of Their lives;\nAnd They who live up a tree,\nAnd feast on grubs and clay,\n(Isn\u2019t it scandalous?) look upon We\nAs a simply disgusting They!\nWe shoot birds with a gun.\nThey stick lions with spears.\nTheir full-dress is un-.\nWe dress up to Our ears.\nThey like Their friends for tea.\nWe like Our friends to stay;\nAnd, after all that, They look upon We\nAs an utterly ignorant They!\nWe eat kitcheny food.\nWe have doors that latch.\nThey drink milk or blood,\nUnder an open thatch.\nWe have Doctors to fee.\nThey have Wizards to pay.\nAnd (impudent heathen!) They look upon We\nAs a quite impossible They!\nAll good people agree,\nAnd all good people say,\nAll nice people, like Us, are We\nAnd every one else is They:\nBut if you cross over the sea,\nInstead of over the way,\nYou may end by (think of it!) looking on We\nAs only a sort of They !\n\n\u00a0\n\u00a0\nThe post We and They appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
