Robert W. Service
He wrote over 2000 poems in his life time so he spent years on it

Why should I be first to go?
He had written many poems in his life.
With over 2000 poems some for friends and family, I guess maybe he had a good relationship with his family. He married a girl named Parisienne Germaine Bourgoin
