Rudyard Kipling is My Demon
Kovie Biakolo

I loved reading this. As an old white guy my love of Kipling is much more problematic. I used to have students commit “If” to memory, but even with a vigorous bludgeoning of Kipling and the substituon of “woman” for man in the last stanza, it was still problematic, so I dropped it in favor of a Frost poem.
