Purchased originally from Loome Booksellers, who was at that time handling a great collection of books from thelibrary of J. R. R. Tolkien, manuscripts by the Inklings, and this little gem of course. Published in the 2008 edition of his collectedworks from thepresent manuscript.Originally extracted from the 'album' of close friend of Chesterton, Lucy Masterman, it actually contains two poems.The first is an absolutely blistering reproof of the brutaland colonial heavy-handingof the Boer War [ you know it won't be subtle when it starts with 'So Cecil Rhodes has gone to Hell,' ]. There are extensive ntoes about the personsmentioned in the piece if you visit the link above. They are nearly all people who were winning blood money and powerfrom theatrocities of the war [which we now know was marked by internment and concentration camps, etc.]. The final stanza is really a separate point and hinges on the last line of the previous poem and israther a pessimistic[read, realistic] commentary on power. Absolutely 100% guaranteed authentic. An original MSs of greater size sold at Christie's for in excess of $26,000. Don't pass this one up.Some tears to second leaf at folds, but no problem at all when mounted.
