     This is not just a study in correctness or the rules, but an exploration of how Kipling's text supports or violates those rules. My guess is that most students will finish in about ten minutes, but discussion make take a whole class period to explore what is similar and what is different in the clauses that Kipling joins with semicolons. This is, in other words, a fundamental exercise in logic as well as in grammar.
