The Cremation of Sam McGee

Here is a great and creepy reading of Robert Service's "The Cremation of Sam McGee" just in time for Halloween. I always thought of this poem as funny but this guy does an amazing interpretation of it.

Robert W. Service - who was called the "Canadian Kipling" - was one of my influences when I wrote "The Ballad of Trolley-Girl Betty".

Text of the full poem can be read here.
