This poet's favourite short poem based on a good, solid pun is Spike Milligan's '2B or Not 2B'.

When the weak pun, on which this poem is based, first occurred to the poet he had an idea to write a full-length Tolkienesque saga in which Elvis really does pop along to Middle-Earth and Mordor and croon and gyrate the orcs into submission.
