  1. I think these lines are from Kipling’s ditty “Delilah.”

    Kipling, the 1907 Nobel laureate in literature, was one of the greatest English storytellers born in India.

    What he writes might well reveal something about the journalism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries — but I still think we need more context to understand/interpret his lines.
