THE SAXON

the wrath of the awakened saxon by kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

This can only end badly.

New neighbors to the south.  HOUSE sold for 560,000, 200 sqft bigger than ours.

Interest on 560000-  20000 per year, principal 17000 per year taxes 8000 per year.   total  45,000 per year  or 4k per month.

I predict they will sell children to keep their home-  4 kids.
