Cap - The Cremation of Sam McGee -

 - So I want you to swear that, foul or fair, you'll cremate my last remains.
A pal's last need is a thing to heed, so I swore I would not fail.

 

Captain Silas Geer - Kathleen -

 - Now though Cap Geer had ne'er a fear the devil he could bilk,
He owned a gastric ulcer and his grub was mostly milk.
He also owned a Jersey cow to furnish him the same,
So soft and sleek and mild and meek, and Kathleen was her name.

Chewed-Ear Jenkins - The Baldness of Chewed-Ear

When Chewed-ear Jenkins got hitched up to Guinneyveer McGee,
His flowin' locks, ye recollect, wuz frivolous an' free;
But in old Hymen's jack-pot, it's amost amazin' thing,
Them flowin' locks jest disappeared like snow-balls in the Spring;
Jest seemed to wilt an' fade away like dead leaves in the Fall,
An' left old Chewed-ear balder than a white-washed cannon ball.

Compensation Pete - Rhymes of a Roughneck

He used to say: There ain't a doubt
Misfortune is a bitter pill,
But if you only pry it out
You'll find there's good in every ill.
There's comfort in the worst of woe,
There's consolation in defeat . . .
Oh what a solace-seeker! So
We called him Compensation Pete.

Constable Clancy - Clancy of  The Mounted Police -

  - Ahead of the dogs ploughed Clancy, haloed by streaming breath;  through peril of open water, through ache of insensate cold;  up rivers wantonly winding in a land affianced to death, till he came to a cowering cabin on the banks of the Nordens cold.
