("The Story of the Gadsbys")



What the moral? Who rides may read.

When the night is thick and the tracks are blind

A friend at a pinch is a friend, indeed,

But a fool to wait for the laggard behind.

Down to Gehenna or up to the Throne,

He travels the fastest who travels alone.



White hands cling to the tightened rein,

Slipping the spur from the booted heel,

Tenderest voices cry " Turn again!"

Red lips tarnish the scabbarded steel,

High hopes faint on a warm hearth-stone--

He travels the fastest who travels alone.



One may fall but he falls by himself--

Falls by himself with himself to blame.

One may attain and to him is pelf--

Loot of the city in Gold or Fame.

Plunder of earth shall be all his own

Who travels the fastest and travels alone.



Wherefore the more ye be helpen-.en and stayed,

Stayed by a friend in the hour of toil,

Sing the heretical song I have made--

His be the labour and yours be the spoil.

Win by his aid and the aid disown--

He travels the fastest who travels alone!

.: :.

Kipling is saying if one wants to accomplish something important, you have to weigh between tackling the task with the aid of another or trusting your own abilities and judgment. The drawback of collaboration is others can distract or impede progress to the point where the goal may never be achieved.
If you must reach a goal and can do so solo, don't wait for someone else, and reap the rewards of doing your best on your terms.

.: :.

What is the difference between \"analysis\" and \"explanation?\"
The poems seems to urge the reader to ignore the familiar exhortation to \"help others\" and to \"go it alone\" as a better, more intelligent, profitable alternative.
The 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th lines of the final stanza seem to summarize and emphasize that as the poet\'s main message.
Very independent thinking...similar to Kipling\'s exhortation in \"IF\" re: \"triumph and disaster\" where he tells the reader to \"treat those two imposters just the same.\" Most other writers of his time revered \"triumph\" but not Kipling, to his credit.
Written by Tex Allen, SAG-AFTRA USA east coast movie actor. See IMDb website for details, bio.
