Does anyone have access to some historical journals or documents that indicate how this poem was received by the general public? It would seem like something controversial, yet not much is written on the matter. Dragoneye776 (talk) 03:08, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Re: citations, or lack thereof. There is a single citation, the poem itself. The associated discussion in the article are obvious on the face of it. Kipling is not one to try for subtlety, after all. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:52, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
I came here to ask the same question, In this article the text is right next to the Wikisource link. Subject to other contributors' views, I'm thinking about deleting the verses, just leaving the link. Policy here. --Old Moonraker (talk) 13:07, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
