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."
