In the Name of the Empress of India, make way,
   O Lords of the Jungle, wherever you roam,
The woods are astir at the close of the day -
   We exiles are waiting for letters from Home.
Let the robber retreat - let the tiger turn tail -
In the Name of the Empress, the Overland Mail!

Rudyard Kipling
