The Old Sailor of Compton

The Old Sailor of Compton, an illustration by JVL in The Nonsense of Edward Lear
Jonathan Cape, 1984 and reissued in 2012.

There was an Old Sailor of Compton,
Whose vessel a rock it once bump'd on,
The shock was so great, that it damaged the pate,
Of that singular sailor of Compton
