To Asia went the honoured Company
which mutiny and rebel war destroyed;
replaced not with the fairest law, or free,
but still, one better than the pagan void.
Despite some deprivations of abuse,
there was a certain hope in Britain’s Raj;
in face of high authority’s ill-use,
the land, made civil, was no still mirage.
There was no “white-man’s burden” to deplore;
The aspect of these conquerors was bright;
for evr’y rake, a Hero did explore,
and missions came to bring the golden light.
Do not defame the Virtues of the West,
for by them, ancient ignorance was wrest.
