Yukon Territory

“This is the law of the Yukon and ever she makes it plain: Send me not your foolish and feeble, send me your strong and your sane. Strong for the red rage of battle; sane for I harry them sore. Send me men girt for combat, men who are grit to the core.”

– Robert William Service

A poem memorized in Mr. Biggs’s 8th grade class in 1994 (!)
