  1. IF KIPLING had not written this poem the Word IF would be in total oblivion but it does not matter how many times i see or hear IF , the poem stops you in your tracks and makes you think!!
    The word IF TENDS to be used in a glass half empty kind of a way such as IF only the bus was on time I would not have been running late and i would not have been in such a such a rush and fallen over and broken my leg!!
    Kipling has a glass half full as seems to be saying you can change things just by viewing or doing things slightly different as only takes one person to start a revolution such as Jane who started the READER revolution i am to busy as the FOOTIE on later so will leave that for another day
    oh well !I will never tire of hearing IF and that reminds me I will never tire of eating a certain brand of cakes whose name I have forgotten!
