AUTHOR UNKNOWN

 
I heard some words recited once, they must have been a quote
   From someoneís literary work, I carefully took note
"HE HESITATED NOT UPON THE ORDER OF HIS GOING"
    I wish I knew the authorís name, I have no way of knowing
   Creation of that set of words to me has clearly shown
   The authorís from another age, an age that weíve outgrown

   Today the statement would be formed in quite a different way
   The sentence might be structured as "The man- he ran away."
   Itís true in fact we canít deny a statement has been stated
   But as to charm or melody, it would be poorly rated

   Sometimes we hear a story told in what is termed as rap
    Between the authorís style and rap there is a mighty gap
   But even God would find it hard to make a better showing
   Of "He hesitated not upon the order of his going
."
