“Song of The Master and Boatswain” by W.H. Auden (read by Tom O’Bedlam)

I am linking here to the SpokenVerse Youtube Channel.  This poem is a favorite of mine.

“Tom O’Bedlam” is such a kick-ass name.  It sounds like a man who starts a lot of barfights.  Or some kind of … Irish agent provocateur.  I’d be thrilled if people nicknamed me “Eric O’Bedlam.”
