The Brown Man's Burden

Pile on the Brown Man's Burden!

And if ye rouse his hate,

Meet his old-fashioned reasons

With Maxims up to date,

With shells and Dum-Dum bullets

A hundred times plain

The Brown Man's loss must never

Imply the White Man's gain.

Labouchere, Henry. "Brown Man's Burden." As quoted in J. Ellis, The Social History of the Machine Gun. New York: Pantheon, 1975.
