His wrong's your wrong, and his right's your right,
In season or out of season.
Stand up and back it in all men's sight--
With that for your only reason!
Nine hundred and ninety-nine can't bide
The shame or mocking or laughter,
But the Thousandth Man will stand by your side
To the gallows-foot--and after!
This is from “The Thousandth Man” by Kipling.
I don’t understand the meaning of the sentences below.
- and back it in all men's sight
- To the gallows-foot--and after!
Am glad if somebody kindly teach me.
